ILO News (KATHMANDU) – Improving the situation of Nepal’s migrant workers was high on the agenda of a three-day high level visit to Nepal by the ILO’S Assistant Director General and Regional Director for Asia and the Pacific, Mr Yoshiteru Uramoto.
In his first meeting with the Prime Minister, Hon. Sushil Koirala, Mr Uramoto conveyed his best wishes to the Prime Minister for a successful transition of Nepal into a stable, peaceful, democratic and prosperous nation. He highlighted some of the key initiatives taken by the ILO to address the touching conditions of Nepalese workers in Qatar. The ILO is sending a high level mission to Qatar to initiate dialogue with Qatari authority with a view to identify immediate and long term plan of actions to improve working conditions of migrant workers in the country. In addition Mr Uramoto suggested that ratifying additional ILO Conventions on freedom of association, social security and domestic work, would help Nepal work with migrant-receiving countries to deal with the problems and challenges of migrant workers. He also proposed that Nepal include labour migration on the agenda of the November 2014 summit of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), which the country is hosting.
