ILO selects Qatar as member of Fair Recruitment Initiative Advisory Committee

(MENAFN- Gulf Times)

The International Labour Organization (ILO) has chosen the State of Qatar as a member of the Advisory Committee of the ILO's Fair Recruitment Initiative, among five governments, in appreciation of its efforts and reforms undertaken in the labour sector and the clear distinction it has achieved in the field of workers' rights.

The selection of the State of Qatar as a member of the committee reflected its tangible progress in promoting fair employment in line with the ILO principles. It also demonstrates the commitment of Qatar to labour migration and fair recruitment through a human rights-based approach.

The ILO Fair Recruitment Initiative Advisory Committee will work to guide the activities of the ILO Fair Recruitment Initiative, identifying priority issues in line with the organization's 2020-2025 strategy. The committee will also monitor the implementation of the Fair Employment Initiative, discussing progress towards the set goals, providing strategic direction, and proposing alternative measures to overcome challenges.

The committee will also provide the necessary guidance to establish a 'knowledge center' for the ILO, propose ideas and projects to promote discussion of key issues, and hold periodic meetings as needed.

On Wednesday, the committee held its first meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, with the participation of Mahmood Al Siddiqi, representative of the Ministry of Labour at the ILO.
