National Dialogue on the Future of Work in the Tea Plantation Sector in Sri Lanka

The International Labour Organization Country Office for Sri Lanka and the Maldives is facilitating a National Dialogue on the Future of Work in the Tea Plantation Sector in Sri Lanka.

The objective of this national dialogue is to identify the various drivers of change that will affect the tea plantations sector as well as the key policies that can transform tea plantations into a dynamic sector and a driver of growth, jobs and improved livelihoods for women and men in rural Sri Lanka. The invitees will represent government institutions, plantation companies and employers’ organisations, trade unions and tea smallholders’ cooperatives, academia and research organisations.

It is expected that the diverse expertise of participants will shape a set of conclusions for a policy blueprint on the future of work in the tea plantation sector in Sri Lanka
