On Tuesday 4 February 2020, the Global Deal will host a high-level conference for all its partners and stakeholders to exchange ideas and experiences on how social dialogue can deliver win-win situations that are to the benefit of both business, workers and society at large. This conference will bring together high-level representatives from governments, businesses, employers’ organisations, trade unions, civil society and other organisations. The speakers include Prime Minister Stefan Löfven (Sweden), OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría, ILO Director-General Guy Ryder, Minister for Foreign Trade and Nordic Affairs Anna Hallberg (Sweden), Minister of Labour and Vocational Training Ith Sam Heng (Cambodia), Minister of Labour and Employment Thulas Nxesi (South Africa) and Minister of Public Administation, Labour and Social Security Jesus Faria Maiato (Angola).
Discussions will focus on experiences on how social dialogue can succeed in managing the changes and transitions in the labour market that are triggered by technological change, climate change and demographic change. The conference will also examine megatrends that are influencing the future of work and the role of social dialogue in moving forward the agenda of job quality and decent work in global supply chains.
