The purpose of the workshop, organised by the ILO Regional Office for Africa as part of the wider Biannual Country Programme Review (BCPR) process, is to examine the efforts made so far in achieving the outcomes and take stock of recommendations, lessons learned and challenges encountered. These, together with the Government’s Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP), Labour Sector Strategic Plan, and Ethiopian Decent Work Profile as well as other development and ILO frameworks will inform the formulation and alignment of the next DWCP. Accordingly, the workshop will be attended by key Government counterparts, ILO tripartite partners, officials and experts, and representatives of DWCP implementing partners.
The workshop was attended by members of the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (both from the Federal Ministry and Regional Bureaux), representatives of the Ethiopian Employers Federation and Confederation of Ethiopian Trade Unions. ILO concerned specialists and National Project Coordinators of ILO Technical projects also attended. A total of 26 participants took part in the workshop.
