An ILO mission was conducted in February 2015 and involved meetings and consultations with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and other PEPM partners and stakeholders, with the following objectives:
- Take stock of PEPM progress and updates since 2011;
- Understand DOLE’s needs and expectations, priority issues and concerns in order to provide more relevant, in-depth analysis;
- Gather additional and more recent data; and
- Set a timeline and work plan for the PEPM 2015 update.
