Asia Pacific
In parts of Asia, forced labour is exacted by the state or the military for multiple purposes. In Burma, villagers are sometimes forced to enlist in the army or work for it. Others are forced to work on public construction projects. In China, hundreds of thousands of prisoners are forced to work under the "re-education through labour system". Asia is also crossed by human trafficking routes, particularly used for sexual exploitation.
