posted on 12/06/2008: 735 views

Labour minister, Saqr Ghobash, who is heading a UAE delegation to the 97th International Labour Conference, which runs in Geneva from 28th May to 13th June, held a series of bilateral meetings with a number of ministers and senior officials of the International labour Organisation (ILO).

Ghobash met with Syrian Minister of Labour and Social Affairs, Diyala Alhaj Arif, Pakistan's Deputy Minister of Labour Manpower and Overseas Pakistanis, Asif Hayat and members of his country's delegation. They shared views on bilateral cooperation between the UAE and their respective countries.

During his meeting with ILO senior officials, Ghobash briefed them about the situation of the UAE labour market, including the rights and incentives foreign labours enjoy in the country. The ILO officials hailed UAE's ratification of the Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

The UAE minister and his accompanying delegation participated in the meeting of labour ministers of Asian and Oceania countries. The meeting was held late Monday here in Geneva. The declaration adopted by ILO earlier in 1998 identified four issue areas as fundamental international labour standards, meaning that any ILO member state should have ratified at least the eight key conventions, which concern freedom of association and collective bargaining, discrimination, forced labour, and child labour. These core standards have been ratified by the overwhelming majority of ILO member states.

Ghobash said that UAE will always be keen in upholding the ILO conventions and cooperating with the international community in protecting labour rights. The conference has discussed a number of pertinent issues including the rights of employment and the world food crisis. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
