Abstract In November 1998, the Governing Body of the International Labour Office decided to organize a tripartite meeting on labour practices in the footwear, leather, textiles and clothing industries. It invited 20 countries to participate in a meeting aimed at exchanging views on labour practices in the footwear, leather, textiles and clothing industries, using this report prepared by the Office as the basis for its discussions. The Meeting, which took place in Geneva in October 2000, adopted conclusions that included proposals for action by governments, by employers' and workers' organizations at the national level, and by the ILO.
