Title: Decent Work in Myanmar - ILO Programme Framework: November 2012 – April 2014
Date of publication: November 2012
Description/subject: Summary: "Building on the engagement with Government of the Union of Myanmar over the past decade and taking into account recent developments and decisions by the International Labour Conference, the ILO will develop its programme in Myanmar for the period November 2012 to April 2014 – a timeframe that reflects the need for immediate action on priority areas for the ILO as well as the preparatory work for a possible future Decent Work Country Programme. The immediate focus of the ILO programme in Myanmar remains on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, notably through i) the continued implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Government on Forced Labour and ii) a scaled-up Freedom of Association programme. In these two areas the ILO will implement a comprehensive programme of work, while undertaking activities during 2013 in other key areas identified by the Government with inputs from the social partners. The overall programme consists of ten interlinked components, managed by the ILO Representative in Yangon with support from across the ILO."
