In a statement, ILO Director Guy Ryder said that multiple global crises and growing inequalities between and within countries hinder the efforts to establish more inclusive, sustainable and resilient labor markets.

It is imperative to invest in skills development for workers for a resilient recovery in the face of digitalization, demographic changes and decarbonization, he emphasized.

Earlier in the day, the labor and employment ministers of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (Brics countries) issued a public statement.

The text underlined that the global labor market remains under the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic, combined with current and future challenges caused by climate change, technological transition and demographic changes.

The statement identified three priorities: promoting green jobs for sustainable development, developing skills for resilient recovery, and protecting workers’ rights in new forms of employment.
