2020 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:

Moderate Advancement

In 2020, Fiji made moderate advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. The government approved its first National Action Plan and National Strategy for Combating Human Trafficking, which contains provisions to address child labor, including its worst forms, and child trafficking in Fiji. Also during the reporting period, the Inter-Agency National Human Trafficking Committee met for the first time since 2011. However, children in Fiji are subjected to the worst forms of child labor, including in commercial sexual exploitation, sometimes as a result of human trafficking. Children also perform dangerous tasks in agriculture. Fiji's light work provisions are not specific enough to prevent children from being involved in child labor. In addition, social programs undertaken by the government are insufficient to support children vulnerable to commercial sexual exploitation, human trafficking, and involuntary domestic work.
