Human Trafficking: How This Criminal Network Became a World Organization Modern day slavery is prevailing in our advanced, post-savage societies all throughout the world. It never looks the same, from domestic servitude, forced labor, child labor, bonded labor and even sex trafficking, it is still a very prominent form of income for many people, a source of terror for others, all the while becoming the norm in these societies. China is a very popular destination for human trafficking, in particular from Vietnam. Other major countries that human trafficking networks in Vietnam might sell these people to are Cambodia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Taiwan, South Korea, Britain and Czech Republic, as seen on the map below.

Men begun seeking outside their country for marriages for different reasons. One obvious reason is there is a larger pool of women when they begin considering other countries, such as Vietnam.

If policies and regulations could become more involved, and government officials worked harder to run rescue missions for the victims that are left helpless, than maybe human trafficking will begin to dwindle. If people became more aware to this issue, then the need to end this horrible network would become a priority.
