July 14, 2017 --  "China has been playing an active role in the international cooperation to combat human trafficking," said Luo Yanhua, member of Chinese Society for Human Rights Studies (CSHRS) and professor with School of International Studies, Peking University.

As of May 5, 2016, China had concluded altogether 121 treaties regarding criminal and civil judicial assistance and extradition with 67 countries.

China’s Ministry of Public Security had established bilateral police cooperation with 83 countries and regions until September 2014.

In March 2013, China issued a plan of action on fighting human trafficking, which clarified its responsibilities and measures in cracking down on transnational crimes of human trafficking.

Since the 1990s, China’s relevant departments have carried out a series of anti-trafficking projects with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the International Labor Organization (ILO) and other international organizations. And multiple cross-border cooperation agreements on anti-trafficking have been signed with China’s neighboring countries including Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
