Bangkok (NNT/VNA) - Thailand will be among 24 nations taking part in the centennial anniversary of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) next month.

Labour Minister Pol Gen Adul Saengsingkaew said the Thai government has continued to provide solutions to labour related problems, boasting that the country’s approach to protecting labourers has been praised by the world community. For this reason, Thailand has been invited, among 24 countries, to take part in the live telecast of the ILO’s 100th anniversary on April 11. On that day, Thailand will have 1 hour, from 10am to 11am, to show the world what it has achieved in labour protection and improvement.

Other Asia-Pacific countries, expected to join Thailand in the live 24-hour broadcast of national events, include the Philippines, China, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India and Fiji.

To celebrate the centenary, Thailand will host an event at the Ministry of Labour’s headquarters in Bangkok, featuring a publication on the relationship between Thailand and the ILO, international labour treaties the country has ratified and steps Thailand has taken to enhance the labour sector.

Founded in 1919 by the United Nations, the ILO brings together governments, employers and workers from 187 member states to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programs promoting decent work for all women and men.– NNT/VNA
