President Cyril Ramaphosa says he is confident that the Global Commission on the Future of Work, underway in Geneva, Switzerland will put forward valuable recommendations to the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
Those recommendations will see governments speeding up policy implementations that will keep-up with developing technology in the workplace and avoid job losses.
Ramaphosa and Swedish Prime Minster Stefan Lofven are co-charing deliberations of the Commission’s Final Report to be tabled at the International Labour Organisation early next year.
The 28 member states of this global Commission seek to find solutions on the rapid transformations taking place in the world of work.
Ramaphosa says solutions are amongst the citizens of the world.
He says: “We need to make sure that we keep with the fourth industrial revolution and curb unemployment.”
On the other hand, trade unions across the globe say employers must invest into the ordinary workers in order to grow their respective country’s economy.
