The new Agreement builds upon a number of ILO-China South-South initiatives that have taken place since 2012 including in Lao PDR and Cambodia. It also puts into practice the 2018 ILC Resolution on Effective Development Cooperation in support of the SDGs.
China’s experience in promoting employment has been remarkable and I have no doubt that sharing the Chinese best practices will be a valuable asset for the success of this initiative."Deborah Greenfield, ILO Deputy Director-General
Commitment to the realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a prominent feature of China’s growing role in the international arena. The ILO is committed to building on South-South cooperation to promote decent work and social justice worldwide. The signing of this new agreement creates a significant pathway for joint achievements.
