font size    

A national action plan with a firm resolve to combat child sex tourism in Sri Lanka, zero tolerance on child exploitation in the country will come into effect from next month, Daily News reported Saturday.

The national action plan to combat child exploitation will be launched on Nov. 8 with the participation of Tourism Minister Anura Bandaranaike as the chief guest, it said.

The national action plan will be implemented by the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund along with the Sri Lanka Tourist Board and the National Child Protection Authority with government and private sector institutions' help.

Apart from the international logo depicting the fight against child exploitation in tourism by the World Tourism Organization, a unique Sri Lankan logo too will be designed and introduced.

Organizing television and radio panel discussions on child exploitation and conducting drama, essay and poster campaigns among school children are among the campaign.

Displaying bill boards with various versions at the airport, customs and immigration and conducting district based workshops and awareness programs are some of the prior activities that have been scheduled before the launching of the national action plan, the paper added.
