Head of Liberia Delegation to ILO conference Outlines challenge African Countries encounter
The head of Liberia delegation to the just ended International Labor Organization (ILO) conference held in Geneva, Switzerland Hon. Christian Chea, Sr. has outlined what he termed major challenge African countries are faced in the ILO.
He said since the establishment of the ILO as an integral part of the United Nations, the continent of Africa as a region has not had a seat in the governing Body of ILO.
This according to him makes it difficult for Africa, as a region to be heard. Adding that all of the members from the African Region have expressed concern for this change since having only a spokesman is not enough for Africa.
The RiverGee County Representative also outlines two key recommendations reached in the conference. One of the recommendations the head of delegation pointed out that it was agreed for ILO to provide technical assistance to all member countries including training and Workshops in each country for lawmakers and labour officials.
He said another important recommendations speaks to the fact of capacity of member countries be strengthened in order to implement ILO convention as support to ILO’s programs.
The last recommendation of the conference Hon. Chea noted calls for the creation for job opportunity for youth and vulnerable groups.

Inc. the newly elected members of Mganmar parliament and head of Myanmaar National Democratic lead Mrs. Asan Sun Kiji first appeared at the ILO after her released from prison by the military leader of Buma.
