Anti-Slavery Summit

Corporations, banks and governments all have a role to play to stop slavery. The Anti-Slavery Summit will focus on how technology, data and regulation can tackle this crime.

The Hard Facts:

  • More than 46 million people live as modern-day slaves across the globe
  • Global annual profits from slavery exceed US$150 billion
  • Over 50% of the worlds most exploited people are in Asia
This has to stop.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation has been a thought leader creating a global movement to raise awareness and support human rights focusing on stopping slavery through concrete action. In 2015, Trust Forum Asia was launched in partnership with the Foundation in Hong Kong and then again in 2016 the event was held in Singapore to continue the mission to take action against slavery. 

In 2017, Thomson Reuters aims to increase the business perspective and focus, partnering with corporations, governments and NGO’s, sharing best practice on how to break the chain of slavery in supply chains. We will showcase how technology from blockchain to digital identity, along with data solutions and enhanced risk procedures and regulation can tackle slavery.  The summit will provide real examples, case studies and ways that all companies can implement with technology and processes to make a difference. 

Join us in uniting some of the most influential global business and thought leaders from corporations, non-profits, governments and lawyers to implement change in your organization today.

On The Agenda:
  • Technology and Data driving change – from digital identify to blockchain
  • Increasing slavery regulations – creating a global standard from the UK Modern Slavery Act to Australia
  • Breaking the chain – supply chain risks and response models and case studies
  • Legal & Banking - driving collaboration and following the money case studies and industry best practice
