ILO in Sri Lanka

  • Our story, your story

    To mark the ILO’s Centenary year, we are excited to be launching a new multimedia, interactive website on 9 January that will take you through the past, present and future of the ILO in a way you’ve never experienced before. The Organization’s work over the decades has affected all of our daily lives – from the working week, to occupational safety and health at work to social protection, and more - so it will be both our story and your story. Join us here on 9 January as we celebrate 100 years of advancing social justice and promoting decent work.
