Prime Minister returns from ILO Conference in Geneva

Prime Minister of Mongolia N.Altankhuyag returned to Mongolia yesterday after delivering a speech at the 103rd Session of the International Labor Conference under the theme “Successful Development-Labor 2014”, in Geneva, Switzerland.


During the working visit to Geneva, N.Altankhuyag attended meetings introducing the “Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprise” and “Skills for Trade and Economic Diversification” projects implemented by the International Labor Organization (ILO), and shared his views regarding Mongolia’s participation.

N.Altankhuyag also held a meeting with the Director General of the ILO, Guy Ryder, where he emphasized the support of the ILO in implementing innovative economic and social policy in Mongolia, noting its contributions towards changing and developing the legal grounds for labor relations, as well as making reforms in wages and the social welfare system, and pointed out the benefits of programs and projects carried out with the support of the ILO to strengthen specialized inspection in labor and promote the transition from an unofficial to an official economy.

At the meeting, the Prime Minister explained that the activities to build socially elaborate three-party relations, sort out the economy, attract foreign investment, increase the efficiency of the work force, invest the results of mining sector growth fairly for the country’s development, and to provide the work force with the means to obtain demanded skill sets have become challenging issues for Mongolia. Furthermore, he expressed Mongolia’s interest in collaborating with the ILO to support and improve SMEs in Mongolia.

The International Labor Organization (ILO) gives an equal voice to workers, employers and governments to ensure that the views of the social partners are closely reflected in labor standards and in shaping policies and programs. The organization organizes annual conferences and invite leaders of countries who are working successfully in the field of labor and asks them to share their experiences with other countries.
