Trade for Decent Work Project

The project aims at improving the application of the ILO fundamental Conventions in EU trading partner countries through improved labour relations and working conditions. Since 2013, the Directorate-General for Trade and the Directorate-General for International Partnerships have funded projects on International Labour Standards implemented by the ILO in numerous countries such as Armenia, Bangladesh, Cabo Verde, El Salvador, Guatemala, Myanmar, Mongolia, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam. Regular consultations between the International Labour Office and the EC on labour related matters in selected countries have contributed to joint reflection to find appropriate solutions within the national contexts to improve labour relations and working conditions in line with core ILS, and were instrumental to monitor projects as they were implemented, facilitating decision-making on key issues resonant to their deliverables.
