Representatives of The Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation (BCCEC) attended the International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, earlier this month.

The BCCEC delegates were there to ensure compliance with international labour standards and discuss important issues of concern to the world of work such as job provision for growing and aging populations, sustainable development, social dialogue and recession recovery.

The broad policies of the International Labour Organization (ILO) are set at the International Labour Conference, which meets once a year in June in Geneva.


This annual conference brings together around 5,000 government, worker and employer delegates of the ILO member States.
