Asia-Pacific looks to boost policing to end human trafficking.

Countries in the Asia-Pacific region on Tuesday agreed to boost “more effective law enforcement” to help bring an end to human smuggling, Australia’s Foreign Minister Bob Carr said, adding that Canberra continues to seek to slow the number of asylum seekers arriving on its northern shores.

The meeting in Indonesia, home to where many of the so-called “boat people” leave from for Australia, saw some 37 countries agree on a framework to end the smuggling of people.

“That means these nations are committed to seeing that there’s more effective control at airports and more effective border protection,” Carr told reporters on the resort island of Bali.
