[HD video below] At the World Savers Congress held last week in Singapore as part of STB's TravelRave concept, Ms. Nicole Conner - a Crime Prevention Associate at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) - spoke about the disturbing topic of human trafficking and the travel industry.

Ms. Conner was speaking in the place of the Academy Award-winning actress and activist, Ms. Mira Sorvino who is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNODC.

Human trafficking, which comes in many different forms, is a 32-billion dollar a year business that is surpassed only by drugs and arms.

"There is a lot that corporations can do," Ms Connor said, praising what Carlson Companies has done, and in particular its founder Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Marilyn Carlson Nelson, who Ms. Connor called a trailblazer in the fight against human trafficking when "she committed her travel companies to a global code of conduct that seeks to protect children from commercial sexual exploitation in travel and tourism."
