The three-day gathering focused on the dynamic processes shaping the future of work in the region, which include rapid technological advances, globalization, demographic trends, large movements of refugees and migrants, as well as environmental challenges, according to an ILO press release.
“There is a considerable amount of uncertainty about where the world of work is heading,” said ILO Director-General Guy Ryder in his closing remarks. “Rather than being optimists or pessimists, we all have to come together with a feeling of determination and ambition. That ambition means not accepting, not being passive spectators to processes of change, but instead having the determination to be the architects of change, so that the future of work can be shaped according to what we want”.
