Engaging with the Private Sector in AFRICA: a recipe to successful GCM implementation

Employers have a key role to play to bring forward business recommendations aimed at addressing tomorrow’s needs for skills, as well as to strengthen the contribution of migration to sustainable development and economies. As all stakeholders are adapting to new economic realities, it is now time for stronger collaboration between governments and the private sector on labour migration issues.

The International Organisation of Employers (IOE), Business Africa, and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) are hosting a series of consultations with employers to inform Africa Regional Review in August 2021. Such consultations will set the scene to draft an African Employers’ Declaration that will be presented at the IMFR.
