  1. 6th European Regional Meeting

    12 - 15 December 2000

    The meeting came at a time of improving labour market performance in Europe. The ILO report pointed out, however, that "the persistence of high rates of unemployment in many Western European countries continues to be a fundamental economic and social problem and is still an important source of poverty." In particular, the ILO noted that "long-term unemployment remains stubbornly high, leaving a significant number of individuals effectively excluded from the labour market." Levels of youth unemployment have also remained high in some countries.
