PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia has shared its 2050 National Transformation (TN50) aspiration which offers opportunities to build decent work and stronger labour rights within a universal paradigm of sustainable development at the recent International Labour Organisation (ILO) related conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
Human Resources Ministry, in a statement, today said that Malaysia made an intervention during the Asia Pacific Group of the ILO (ASPAG) meeting, making reference to TN50.
The ASPAG met on the sidelines of the 106th session of International Labour Conference (ILC) to discuss on Decent Work for Sustainable Development.
"TN50 has been derived from the basic essence of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goal, which is poised to transform Malaysia's economy and enhance the citizen's well-being regardless of race, colour and creed," said the ministry's statement. Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Richard Riot, when delivering a statement at the plenary of 106th session of ILC, shared Malaysia's vision on green technology that accelerates the national economy and promotes sustainable development through the National Green Technology Policy. The ministry said Riot touched on the Green Policy that had been enshrined in the Eleventh Malaysia Plan, 2016-2020, highlighting the notable developments that had taken place between Malaysia and ILO on issues of green job mapping, construction of database, capacity development and developing the occupational standards on green skills.
The ILC conference from June 11 to 13 themed, "Work In A Changing Climate: The Green Initiative", brought over 4,000 delegates from around the globe to discuss the most pressing labour related issues facing the world today. — Bernama
