PARIS, (ILO news) - The International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen their cooperation and coordination in fields of common interest and activity.

In recent years, the ILO and the OECD have expanded their collaboration in a wide range of areas related to the world of work, including employment, social protection, labour migration, green jobs, occupational safety and health and statistics. The intensification of cooperation led both organizations to develop a new Memorandum of Understanding, which will replace the one signed in 1961.
