Strengthening the Impact on Employment of Sector and Trade Policies in Philippines

The Philippines is one of the nine countries where the project “Strengthening the Impact of Trade on Employment” (STRENGTHEN) is implemented. The Project is an EU-supported ILO global project that aims to support emerging economies like the Philippines to improve and strengthen the coherence and convergence of its sector, trade and employment policies and programmes for better decent work and positive employment outcomes. The project seeks to help the Philippines harness international trade to its advantage through various capacity-building activities and programmes and social dialogue mechanisms that would involve and benefit relevant government agencies, social partners and other key stakeholders and voices.
