Without productive employment, achieving the goals of decent living standards, social and economic integration, personal fulfillment and social development becomes a chimera. Enterprise promotion and human resource development are key elements in achieving these goals, particularly for small and medium-sized enterprises. 

From this perspective the ILO conducts employment-related research and analysis, helps countries, like Indonesia and Timor-Leste, in formulating national employment policies, and promotes skills and enterprise development, youth employment and job creation.
