ILO Director-General Elect Guy Ryder about the ILO-EU partnership

"The ILO and the EU have an essential partnership", says Guy Ryder in an interview with the UN Regional Information Centre in Brussels. Emphasizing the historical aspects of the cooperation of the ILO and the EU, he also considers tomorrow's challenges for both the ILO and the EU. "We will have to work together to find answers to questions at the practical level, like the youth employment crisis that is hitting Europe particularly hard", Ryder says. "Tackling these issues can be done at EU-wide and at national levels", he concludes.
