Must Read

A one-day workshop on National Employment Policy (NEP), a joint collaboration between the Ministry of Labour, Human Resource Development, and Training, and the International Labour Organization (ILO),opened, this morning, in Port Louis.

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Labour, Human Resource Development and Training, Mr Doonunjay Dassaye, the Director Country Office for Madagascar, Mauritius, Comoros, and Seychelles, ILO, Mr Frederik Muia, and other personalities were present.

In his address, Mr Dassaye stressed the imperative of ensuring equitable access to dignified and productive employment for all citizens of Mauritius, aiming to enhance their standard of living and preserve their sense of dignity. Despite the stabilisation of Mauritius’ economy due to innovations and advancements across various sectors, Mr. Dassaye stressed the necessity for a policy framework that actively shapes economic, sectoral, and social policies toward the attainment of full and freely chosen employment, along with decent job opportunities for all.

He underscored the NEP’s objectives, which focus on establishing institutional structures aligned with the overarching policy vision, highlighting the importance of social and economic inclusion, as well as the development of robust policy frameworks and implementation strategies for sustainable long-term employment. Additionally, Mr Dassaye expressed gratitude to the ILO for its unwavering support in advancing these goals.

For his part, Mr Muia emphasised the importance of the NEP, which aims to provide meaningful and productive employment opportunities for all Mauritians. He articulated the goal of creating an employment landscape that not only meets current needs but also anticipates future demands, thereby offering a better quality of life and equitable prospects for all workers.

Furthermore, he outlined the NEP workshop’s objectives, including stimulating employment growth in emerging sectors, addressing education and skills gaps, promoting employability, strengthening labour market policies and institutions, and advancing quality employment through decent work and social inclusion.
