Prime Minister of Bangladesh speaks at Global Jobs Summit

Speaking by video address to the Global Jobs Summit at the 98th International Labour Conference (ILC), the Prime Minister of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh shared her concerns with other world leaders about the on-going crises in financial and jobs markets. At the closing session of the Summit, Her Excellency Sheikh Hasina added that special action was needed to address the needs of the world’s less developed countries and in particular migrant workers, a group of people whose needs would have to be addressed jointly by migrant sending and receiving countries. The ILC has attracted 4,000 delegates from Governments, Workers and Employers organizations from more than 180 countries to the annual event of the UN agency dealing with issues affecting the world of work.
