"The workshop is meant to discuss outcomes achieved through counter-trafficking efforts by the IOM, China and European police forces, in cooperation with the Chinese Ministry of Public Security, as well as good practice guidelines for victim identification, assistance and screening," the organization said in a press release.
According to the IOM, China is one of the three main non-EU source countries in terms of human trafficking.
"China is increasingly becoming both a source and destination country for human trafficking," the IOM said.
China faces serious problems regarding human trafficking, especially in the Greater Mekong sub-region. The Global Slavery Index 2016 estimates 3.4 million people living in slavery in China.
