The ILO Office in Japan has prepared Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) 2007-09 as framework for ILO activities in Japan, in consultation with government, social partners and ILO Association of Japan. The Office has been conducting activities in accordance with five priorities set in the programme.
Fourteenth Asian Regional Meeting of the International Labour Organization (ILO), held in Busan, Republic of Korea in late August 2006, launched an “Asian Decent Work Decade.” In response to this international agreement, tripartite constituents in Japan are expected to actively work together towards realization of Decent Work.
This brochure provides an overview of current ILO projects funded by the Government of Japan, which has supported the ILO for more than 30 years.
After rejoining in ILO in 1951, Japan had been a recipient of ILO technical cooperation by sending Japanese participants to training prgrammes and meetings that were organized by ILO. It has been more than 55 years since then, and at present Japan is one of the big donors of ILO technical cooperation.
An exhibition to mark the 35th anniversary of the Japanese Government’s support for the ILO will be held at the ILO’s Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland from 9-30 June.
