ILO: Grassi meets DG Houngbo, “together toward global coalition for social justice”

GENEVA, FEBRUARY 17 – Ambassador Vincenzo Grassi, who took office as the Italian Permanent Representative to International Organizations in Geneva at the end of January, met today with ILO Director-General Gilbert Houngbo.

Grassi ILOGrassi thanked Houngbo for his warm appreciation of Italy’s historic role at the ILO from its founding to the present. “We work together toward a global coalition for social justice,” the Italian Ambassador told his interlocutor, who was appointed as head of the Geneva-based organization last year after a tenure at IFAD, one of the agencies of the UN food and agriculture hub in Rome.

ILO is the UN’s specialized agency on labor and social policy issues. Founded in 1919 as part of the Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I, it adopts international labor standards, promotes fundamental principles and rights at work, decent work opportunities, the strengthening of social protection, and social dialogue on labor issues. It is the only one among all the organizations in the multilateral system to have a tripartite structure where representatives of governments, employers’ organizations and trade unions from 187 member countries have the same voice and work together to adopt international labor standards and formulate international policies and programs that impact the world of work and social policy.

Italy host in Turin ILO’s International Training Centre since 1964. As part of the International Labour Organization, the Centre is dedicated to achieving decent work while exploring the frontiers of the future of work. Ambassador Grassi met today Christophe Perrin, the new Director-designate of the Centre, which delivers more than just training courses, but guides participants through learning journeys, featuring interactive workshops, virtual collaboration tools, and the latest educational technologies.(@OnuItalia)
