Qatar is hailed for its excellence in the labour sector with ILO presidency

Represented by HE the Minister of Labour Dr Ali bin Smaikh al-Marri, the country has been recognised for its achievements within the labour sector by way of being elected for presidency over the International Labour Conference.

This election to preside over the 111th session of the ILO comes as a first since the ILO was established. According to a statement by the Ministry of Labour, “The election of Qatar as chair of the conference in the Qatar Hall at the United Nations building bears a symbolic indication of the place and event, and is witness to the achievements of Qatar in all fields at international forums.”

Also known as the International Parliament of Labour, the conference aims to set policies, discuss programmes and budgets, as well as elect governing members.

“This is due to the continued trust the global community places in the integrity of Qatar. Over the years, Qatar has demonstrated its commitment to enhancing and developing the work environment. This appointment also serves as a testament to the successful collaboration with international labour organisations and unions that Qatar has fostered,” the statement continues.

This further emphasises just how well the country exemplifies excellence in the labour sector.

“I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to perform this honourable duty, and I will do my best, with my colleagues in the office, to direct the work of the conference on the basis of its well-established traditions, principles and guidelines, and I will spare no effort to ensure the success of this conference. I am counting on your valuable support to this end,” says HE Dr al-Marri.
