Guy Ryder was presented a congratulatory message from the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev on the occasion of the organization’s 100th anniversary.
Noting the results of his visit to Uzbekistan last December, the ILO Director General emphasized that the meeting held in Tashkent with the President of Uzbekistan and the agreements reached at the highest level made it possible to significantly raise the mutual relations of the parties to a qualitatively new level.
The ILO leader welcomed the ratification by Uzbekistan this year of Convention No. 144 on tripartite consultations to promote the application of international labor standards and the Additional Protocol to Convention No. 29 on forced labor. The readiness of the ILO Secretariat to assist in the practical implementation of these documents was expressed.
