ILO Director Guy Ryder's Interview with CNNTurk

“Social and economic policies should go hand in hand to combat unemployment and income inequality,” says ILO head Guy Ryder. ILO Director-General Guy Ryder, who came to Turkey as part of the G20 and speaking to the CNNTurk, said the most important global problems of the world of work were unemployment and the income inequality and that the social and ecomomic policies including a well-balanced distribution of tax and wage policies as well as more effective social protection systems should hence accompany each other. Ryder also said not only the legislative regulations but building of the prevention culture is also vital to avoid occupational accidents which are at a high level in Turkey.
