The key to ending child labor in the Philippines may depend on supporting and regulating informal sectors, the International Labor Organization said Monday.

Project coordinator Giovanni Soledad said the child labor remains an issue in the Philippines because most of young workers are in informal sectors, such as small-scale mining.

By formalizing these sectors, the ILO said, it will be easier for the government to enforce laws.
