27th Asean Labor Ministers’ Meeting to be held in PH
The 27th Asean Labor Ministers’ Meeting (ALMM) and Related Meetings will take place in Manila this week, according to a statement made by the labor secretary on Sunday.
Labor ministers and senior labor officials from the Asean member states of Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam are anticipated to attend the meetings from October 25 to 29.
Additionally, the labor authorities will meet with China, Japan, and South Korea, the other Asean Plus Three discussion partners.
The biennial meetings, according to Laguesma, who will preside over the ALMM, are a significant forum for identifying and advancing areas of regional cooperation on labor and employment-related issues.
The face-to-face format will be back for this year’s sessions, which will center on the theme of moving past the epidemic and advancing the promotion of a digitalized, inclusive, and sustainable recovery and growth for workers.
The examination of the development of several regional programs on skill development, digitization, climate change, and green jobs, industrial relations, and the changing nature of work, migration, and social protection are all on the agenda for the meetings.
According to Laguesma, the meetings will also draw attention to the need for more regionally coordinated responses to the problems of unemployment, particularly in rural areas, rising food prices, and inflation, which are currently among the biggest threats to the welfare and well-being of workers in the area.
The delivery of technical and vocational education and training (TVET); ensuring that ICT and digitalization are accessible to everyone; and modernizing agriculture to increase agricultural productivity, increase food security, and create new jobs are all expected to be among the regional actions that the labor ministers will prioritize.
Laguesma pointed out that the ALMM agenda’s top priorities for the first time include food security and agricultural modernization.
According to Laguesma, this is a positive development for the Philippines as it is completely in line with the strategic goals of President Ferdinand R. Marcos’ socioeconomic strategy.
