The International Labour Organisation is calling on the Fiji government to strengthen and enforce legislation that protects children from child labour.

The Fiji Times reports the ILO has called for child labour monitoring mechanisms and the allocation of rehabilitation resources for children stuck in the system.

The group says the need for education and training for children in these circumstances is particularly important.

The ILO is calling for an improvement in working conditions for young people and also training and skills for young people no longer at school.
