ILO-China cooperation: 10th anniversary of the MoU
Adopted in 2001, the Memorandum of Understanding between the ILO and China set out agreed policy priorities for future cooperation within each of the four strategic pillars of the Decent Work agenda, namely: employment promotion, rights at work, social protection and social dialogue.
10 years later, the ILO and the Chinese Ministry of Labour renewed their commitment by initiating a new South-South cooperation in the field of human resources and social security.
