Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Monday urged industry players, civil society organisations and government agencies to work collaboratively in educating business owners, public officials and the community about the pitfalls of human trafficking and its adverse impact on the nation.

He said human trafficking would persist if the business community continued to create demand for trafficked persons and public officials turned a blind eye to it.

Muhyiddin said this at a national conference on human trafficking, organised by the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti- Smuggling of Migrants Council (MAPO) and Joining Hands Against Modern Slavery (JHAMS).
