Mr Guy Ryder
The Director General of ILO addressed the Regional General Council on Sunday 25th October and outlined the challenges faced by ILO and its focus on the world of work. He discussed the prevailing issues faced in the region with Council members.
The DG also was the key speaker at the Tripartite Forum on Monday 26th October. He stressed the importance of Tripartism. The DG however warned that Tripartism must not be misused only in difficult times. The success of Tripartism will only be realised if it is genuine based on trust and is not an opportunist Tripartism in difficult times. Tripartism must be permanent in good and bad times where the partners acted in a sincere manner. He stressed that Tripartism is the only way for countries to realise their full potential.
Tripartite partners from Barbados, Norway, Singapore and Sweden also participated.
