Access to decent work is a fundamental right!
The ILO’s Decent Work Agenda is based on the recognition that productive employment and decent work are key factors in reducing poverty, increasing welfare and achieving gender equality.
Belgium is committed to the implementation of this Decent Work Agenda and therefore launches a new policy paper on Decent Work during its EU-presidency. The implementation of this agenda will be based on a strong partnership between the social partners, NGO’s, the Belgian bilateral agency (Enabel) and administration (DGD), the Belgian Investment Company (BIO) and the ILO.
The Belgian Minister of Development Cooperation and Major Cities Caroline Gennez invites you to the launch of the Belgian strategy paper on Decent Work on 12 January, at 14h30, at Residence Palace, Brussels.
