Assistant Director General of the International Labor Organisation (ILO) Cynthia Samuel-Olonjuwon asserted on Tuesday 11/2/2020 that the ILO is cooperating with Egypt and African countries for serving in particular the interests of young people and women.
In an interview with MENA at the end of her current visit here, she added that the ILO is working to increase the participation of women in the labor market and leading posts in the government or in the private sector.
She pointed out that the ILO is cooperating with international institutions such as the World Bank and UNICEF to support societies that are hosting large numbers of refugees to help them achieve development in the fields of education and improving skills.
The United Nations is financing a development program that is financed by Holland in many countries including Egypt, Sudan, Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia, she pointed out.
As for joint cooperation with Egypt, ILO Cairo bureau chief Eric Oechslin said that cooperation is maintained in the fields of social security and providing jobs for young people and women through training and skills promotion programs.
