Yangon, 18 June —The International Labour Organization will send a 15-person delegation from Myanmar, comprising employers, workers and government officials, to Italy for an industrial relations course before the end of the year, a trade union representative revealed
Wednesday.
Conducted by the International Training Centre, the two-week course is aimed at ensuring good relations and stability in the workplace, said U Maung Maung, president of the Confederation of Trade Unions Myanmar.
U Maung Maung, who attended the 104th International Labour Conference in Geneva as a worker’s delegate earlier this month, confirmed the Myanmar delegation’s attendance at the training course with ILO officials.
The agreement followed a meeting between the director of the ITC and a Myanmar delegation on the sidelines of the Geneva conference, U Maung Maung said. The course includes a wide range of theory and practical knowledge covering the entire scope of industrial relations.
Union Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security U Aye Myint also asked ILO Director-General Mr Guy Ryder to send experts to Myanmar to provide vocational training in order to increase the number of skilled workers in the country.
The International Labour Organization and the Italian Government established the International Training Centre in 1964 in Turin as an advanced vocational training institute.GNLM
