I would like to express my deep gratitude to the German and Austrian OSCE Chairmanship teams for their firm support throughout 2016-2017. I also wish to thank the delegations of the participating States and Partners for Co-operation for providing my team and I with the political and financial backing necessary to effectively combat human trafficking. Without your support, throughout 2016 and 2017, my Office could not so successfully have continued to assist OSCE participating States in the areas of prevention, prosecution, and protection. My thanks also go to all OSCE Secretariat departments and OSCE structures, including Field Operations, for the constant support and co-operation. Looking to the future, the OSR/CTHB will continue to work closely across the OSCE region with governments, parliaments, the judiciary, civil society and international organizations to prevent and combat trafficking in human beings.
