Countries covered

The programmes of the ILO Country Office for China and Mongolia promote and support the ILO's Decent Work Agenda such as agreed with the constituents in the Decent Work Country Pogramme established for both China and Mongolia.

The focus of these programmes is to advance social justice and promote decent work for all. The ILO programmes and projects cover issues as such the ratification and implementation of international labour standards; the strengthening of sustainable entreprises and supply chains; the extension and improvement of social protection benefits; the implementation of health and safety standards especially in SMEs; the protection of vulnerable groups of workers including these living with HIV/AIDS and disabilities; and the adequate labour and social protection for workers in non-standard forms of employment such as those working in the informal or gig economies. The ILO carries out these programmes and policies taking into account the gender dimension and the unequal position of women in the world of work. Finally, strengthening tripartism and social dialogue is at the heart of all ILO activities, and this applies also to China and Mongolia.

In both countries, emphasis is placed on building the capacity of ILO constituents, advocacy, policy dialogue and advice, knowledge sharing including in the context of South-South cooperation and piloting of innovative initiatives.
