Badung, Bali (ANTARA) - The 2022 G20 Labor and Employment Ministers' Meeting (LEMM) has yielded five agreements related to the employment sector, Manpower Minister Ida Fauziyah informed at a press conference after the meeting here on Wednesday.

Organized under the Sherpa Track, LEMM was a ministerial-level meeting that was held to follow up on the results of the discussion at the Employment Working Group (EWG) meetings—which have been held five times—on sustainable job creation, work safety and health, as well as building an inclusive labor market

The minister informed that the agreements reached at the meeting included the Action Plan on Accelerating and Monitoring the G20 Principles for the Labor Market Integration of Persons with Disabilities document, which contains a commitment by G20 members to help people with disabilities enter an inclusive job market.

The participants of the meeting also agreed to implement monitoring of a list of indicators, which would be analyzed by the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The results of the monitoring will be reported every four years.

The meeting also yielded the G20 Policy Recommendations for Sustainable Growth and Productivity for Human Resource Capacity Development through Strengthening Community-Based Vocational Training (CVBT) document.

"The CBVT is (adopted from) our vocational training center (BLK) flagship program, which we introduce to the G20 members and the world to develop an inclusive and sustainable vocational training approach," Fauziyah said.

The third document, Policy Recommendation for Promoting Entrepreneurship and Supporting MSMEs (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises) as a Job Creation Instrument, contains a commitment from G20 members to increase inclusive and sustainable employment opportunities by intensifying entrepreneurship and MSME programs.

The fourth document, G20 Policy Principles on Adapting Labor Protection for More Effective Protection and Increased Resilience for all Workers, aims to provide employment protection for all workers.

The fifth document, Update of the G20 Skills Strategy, contains an agreement to develop integrated governance to ensure that all citizens get proper basic education and access to continuous skills improvement so that their working skills remain relevant in the face of labor market changes.

"All of the documents are expected to be a guide for conducting policy-making on labor issues, not only for G20 countries but also developing countries," the minister added.
