In preparation for the G20 Employment and Labor Ministers Meeting, to be held in Washington DC on April 20-21, the International Labour Organization (ILO) has produced a series of background reports on the evolving employment situation in the context of the global financial crisis. The reports include a statistical overview; a package of country briefs with statistical updates, and a review of employment and social protection policies (all available online here).
ILO Director-General Juan Somavia will present the result of this survey to the G20 Employment and Labor Ministers in a new report entitled “Accelerating a Job-rich Recovery in G20 countries: Building on Experience“. The report provides an assessment of the impact of the policy measures taken to date across G20 countries and identifies the policy challenges for a sustained jobs recovery.
