Bali Process Government and Business Forum
The Bali Process Government and Business Forum (GABF) (www.baliprocessbusiness.org) brings together senior business leaders and government ministers across the Indo-Pacific region to contribute towards the eradication of human trafficking, forced labour, modern slavery and the worst forms of child labour. The Forum convenes every two years alongside the wider Ministerial Conference, the Bali Process on People Smuggling, Trafficking in Persons and Related Transnational Crime.
After the inaugural launch in Perth 2017, the Second Forum was held on 6-7 August in Nusa Dua, Bali. Over 350 participants from 52 countries and a range of businesses attended the event. In a significant milestone for the Indo-Pacific region, the Acknowledge, Act, Advance (AAA) Recommendations were endorsed by government and business, being the first major policy document agreed between the private and public sector to tackle issues of modern slavery in the region.
The business network, for which the Walk Free Foundation are Secretariat, include companies from a diversity of sectors. Business representatives from across CSR, operational or managerial teams work with the Secretariat throughout the year. Business Leaders, typically at Chairman or executive level, represent business interests from across the region at the Ministerial Conference. The Government and Business Forum is co-chaired by Australian Business Leader, Andrew Forrest (Chairman Fortescue Metals Group), Indonesian Business Leader, Eddy Sariaatmadja (Chairman Emtek Group) and the Foreign Ministers of Australia and Indonesia.
