The agreement includes a framework on improving industrial relations through training and compliance with international labour standards including occupational safety and health, wages, nature of employment, discrimination and other forms of mal-practices.
Francesco d' Ovidio, country Director of ILO addressing the participants attending the agreement said that issues in the garment industry are systemic and require action that helps develop effective industrial relations and promote respect of international labour standards. He added that there is an "urgent need" to establish strategic and comprehensive public private collaborations.
