ILO Director-General Guy Ryder called on governments to work together "to start putting people back to work". Speaking on a panel at the Ford Foundation-ILO High level event, "Employment and Decent Work for Inclusive and Sustainable Development", Ryder also noted since young people are more likely to be unemployed than adults that apprenticeships were important to reduce the mismatch between what companies need and what education provides. The event included panels moderated by CNN's Richard Quest that included four Heads of State, the CEO of Coca Cola and the General Secretary of the ITUC.
