Workshop on EESC-ILO cooperation

The International Labour Organization (ILO) received a delegation from the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on 9 March 2010, further to their 1 December 2005 agreement to strengthen relations between the two institutions. The visit provided an opportunity to exchange views on issues of common interest, to explore how the ILO and EESC could enhance their cooperation, and to examine the potential for further synergies. Issues of common interest included the global economic crisis, fundamental principles and rights at work, labour migration and enterprise development.
