Abstract The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) has prepared this 11th annual report on the Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor in accordance with the Trade and Development Act of 2000 (TDA).(1) The TDA expanded country eligibility criteria for several preferential tariff programs to include the requirement that beneficiary countries implement their commitments to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. (2) The expanded country eligibility criteria apply to the following trade preference programs: the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program, enacted by the Trade Act of 1974; the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA); the U.S.- Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act (CBTPA); and the Andean Trade Preference Act/Andean Trade Promotion and Drug Eradication Act (ATPA/ATPDEA).(2-5) The TDA mandated the Secretary of Labor to report on each beneficiary countrys implementation of its international commitments to eliminate the worst forms of child labor.(2) USDOLs Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) carries out this responsibility. 1.2 REPORT OVERVIEW This report is divided into four parts.
