STORYLINE:

Prime Ministers of Palestine, Burkina Faso, Jamaica and Serbia addressed the 108th International Labour Conference today (12 Jun) in Geneva, Switzerland.

Mohammad Shtayyeh, Prime Minister of the Palestinian National Authority said, “Investing in human beings and in building institutions is paramount for Palestinians.”

Shtayyeh elaborated further: “we want to build a successful country capable of serving the people and providing them with their basic needs.”

Also speaking at the conference were Ana Brnabić, Prime Minister of Serbia; Christophe Joseph Marie Dabire, Prime Minister, Burkina Faso; and Andrew Holness, Prime Minister of Jamaica.
Christophe Joseph Marie Dabire, Prime Minister, Burkina Faso reminded participants that “our organization [ILO] will still be very relevant over the next hundred years in matters of social justice and decent work in the world. Now more than ever, we need to build a future of work around the principle of global inclusion and above all consider all types of work.”

Prime Minister of Jamaica warned of “enormous challenges” that humanity is facing at the dawn of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and said “the scale, scope and complexity of the world of work in the next decade will be unrecognizable. The fusion of technologies will obliterate the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres.”

Ana Brnabic, the Prime Minister of Serbia said “people fear that the Forth Industrial Revolution will mean fewer jobs. On the contrary, I think there will be more jobs, but they will be very different to the jobs of today.”

Brnabic concluded: “if we face these challenges today, together, and understand how crucial investments in education and creativity are, and that we have to make those investments now, I think we will have more and better jobs in the future.”

More than 40 heads of government and state are scheduled to address the two-week long Conference, which is the 108th session of the International Labour Conference (ILC). During the Conference nearly 6,000 delegates – representing governments, workers and employers – will discuss transformative changes in the world of work and will consider the adoption of a landmark International Labour Organization (ILO) Centenary Declaration on the future of work. They will also discuss violence and harassment at the workplace with a view to adopting a new international instrument.
