The International Labour Organisation (ILO) will lift its sanctions on
the country, according to the Myanmar Ministry of Labour.
The ILO approved the resolution at its 101 st conference in Geneva on June 13.
Subsequently, the ILO will lift the sanctions it first imposed on
Myanmar in 1999-2000, after examining the country’s efforts to put an
end to the use of forced labour.
The resolution also
states that the ILO, as well as member nations and organisations,
should offer Myanmar the technical assistance it needs.-VNA
