South-South Cooperation amongst unions

The ILO Bureau for Workers'Activities (ACTRAV) and All China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU) have entered into a South-South cooperation agreement to assist trade union development in the Asia and the Pacific region. This is the second phase of the project. The first phase covered the period 2013.

The project involves ACFTU providing funding resources and the ILO ACTRAV its technical capacity. The agreement outlines a set of regional activities on selected topics to be organised by ACTRAV with a view to strengthening unions in the Asia- Pacific region and to develop effective trade union policies and strategies on protecting and promoting fundamental rights of workers.

Since 2013 a number of regional seminars have been carried out.
