    About the ILO in Latvia

    Latvia is a member state of the ILO since 1991.

    The ILO has assisted Latvia in its economic and labour market transformation and in its accession to the EU in 2004. Main areas of work included establishing and strengthening social dialogue and tripartism, examining the effects of privatization and labour market transition, supporting the development of new labour market programmes, institutions and labour law reform, supporting pension reform and sustainable social security system.

    The ILO is currently providing technical assistance to Latvia for the design, monitoring and evaluation of youth employment policies and schemes.
