“Consistent with the Labor and Employment Plan 2011-2016, we are constantly searching for the policy options that will enable inclusive growth through gender equality, decent and productive work. Our researches show that this can be done in the areas of employment, workers’ rights, social protection and social dialogue,” said Cruz.

Sessions of the Strategic Conversations were on four thematic areas on Expanding Partnerships and Improving Systems for Social Dialogue; Improving Social Protection; improving Employment Outcomes thru Adaptation Initiatives and Increasing Mobility; and, Promoting Workers’ Rights.
