The UNICEF stand at Business Link 2012 will provide information and advice about the importance and benefits of implementing these principles, about the areas where the intervention of the private sector may have a more positive impact on children in Mozambique, and how companies can best contribute to the protection of human rights of children in their policies, operations, products, services, initiatives and activities.
Over 200 leading companies are expected to participate in the fair as exhibitors, in addition to thousands of visitors.
