Employment promotion

Without productive employment, achieving the goals of decent living standards, social and economic integration, personal fulfillment and social development becomes a chimera. Enterprise promotion and human resource development are key elements in achieving these goals. The ILO conducts employment analysis and research, promotes employment-intensive investment and helps formulate employment policy. It also promotes skills development, job creation, enterprise development and cooperatives.
