Virtual Global Taskforce meet chaired by UAE concludes in Wellington


WELLINGTON: The first Virtual Global Taskforce, VGT, board meeting of 2017, which started on 8th May and was chaired by the UAE, concluded in Wellington, New Zealand, in the presence of board members, member countries, as well as private sector and public benefit organisations.

Major General Dr. Nasser Lakhrebani Al Nuaimi, elected President of the VGT, said that the task force strategy would be renewed this year. He cited a number of vital projects managed by the task force such as the capacity building project and the strategic relations for service providers' project, which will positively impact the results of 2017 and 2018.

Dr. Al Nuaimi added that these two years will witness concrete developments in the unifications of mechanisms addressing children's protection from Internet risks. He pointed to investigation, training and field work activities for both member and other countries.

He also highlighted that even though many other international groups work on this issue, the VGT operates in a strategic field-based way. This is in cooperation with service providers from the public sector and public benefit organisations combatting child abuse through joint projects, the results of which are monitored periodically.

The VGT president said that member countries agreed, during the meeting, to promote cooperation for the implementation of further concrete procedures, the building of robust and exceptional relations, and exchange of information at the regional and international levels to deter perpetrators and promote joint action to protect children from risks of the Internet.

The New Zealand Police expressed its happiness in hosting the bi-annual VGT meeting in the city of Wellington, stressing the importance of the meeting's outputs. The meeting comprised projects and initiatives to assist member countries in the pursuit of protecting children, as well as holding workshops in cooperation with the public sector.
