Organizers of the 13th African Regional Meeting of the International Labour Organization- ILO, have announced that the regional meeting will hold in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, from 30 November-03 December 2015.
The Federal Republic of Ethiopia is expected to host the meeting for the third time since 2000, the high-level meeting with the theme “Inclusive and Sustainable Development in Africa through Decent Work “is set to discuss the strategic way forward for the region in the context of the recently adopted 2030 sustainable development goals.
Against a background of unprecedented unemployment rates, limited employment opportunities, especially for Africa’s youth, and growing inequalities in access to basic social protection, the economic and social actors of the world of work in Africa will consider key policy recommendations for Africa’s inclusive growth and social progress.
Government, workers’ and employers’ representatives from the ILO’s 54 African member States will discuss a report by ILO Director-General Guy Ryder who participated last July in the Third International Conference on Financing for Development held in Addis Ababa.
The conference will take place at the United Nations Conference Centre of the UNECA in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
