WASHINGTON DC —
Representatives from 11 African Regional Labour Administration Centre (ARLAC) member countries are meeting in Harare for a 5-day workshop to share ideas on the labour market, policy issues, information dissemination, worker welfare and technology with the aim of creating opportunities for social partners to work together.
The workshop was officially opened Monday by Labour and Social Welfare Minister and ARLAC chairperson Paurina Mpariwa Gwanyanya, who said they hope to also discuss issues like decent work which touches on workers’ rights and the environment at work places.
Delegates that include labour and employer representatives are from Zimbabwe, South Africa, Zambia, Malawi, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Uganda and four other nations.
Mpariwa Gwanyanya said by holding such workshops they hope to compel investors to consider Africa as an important investment destination.
