Global progress to end child labour has stalled for the first time in 20 years. One in ten children in the world are victims of child labour, and the number is growing. Social protection is key to providing an environment to keep children away from this reality and the EU continues working with its international partners to this end.
The first ever EU-Zambia Economic Forum brought together more than 1,000 participants, including representatives of over 200 companies, several financial institutions and policy-makers. They gathered in Lusaka to explore new joint investment opportunities aiming to build more inclusive, sustainable and resilient economies.
