Tripartite Validation Workshop of the Bangladesh Decent Work Country Profile - Workshop Report

A tripartite validation workshop for the Bangladesh Decent Work Country Profile organized by the ILO Country Office for Bangladesh was held on 25-26 September 2012 at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel. The workshop was prepared in line with the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization (2008) , which recommends the establishment of appropriate indicators or statistics - if necessary with assistance from the ILO - to monitor the progress made in the implementation of the ILO Decent Work Agenda. The main purpose of the workshop was to give key stakeholders (particularly, the ILO tripartite constituents) an opportunity to review and “validate” the draft of Decent Work Country Profile for Bangladesh, which has been prepared by a national consultant, Dr Abdul Hye Mondal, together with the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics and ILO, and is aimed at providing a baseline assessment of recent progress in the various components of decent work in Bangladesh. This workshop was organized to ensure that this profile is finalised in line with the expectations of the ILO’s tripartite constituents, and contains the most accurate and credible data and analysis .
