The Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu, on Thursday represented President Yoweri Museveni at the opening of the 46th Africa Regional Labour Administration Centre (ARLAC) Governing Council meeting, which took place at Speke Resort Munyonyo.
The meeting was attended by Ministers in charge of Labour/employment issues in the English speaking countries in Africa.
The main objective of the meeting was to deliver key resolutions on the pertinent issue of Social Protection, specifically on how to upscale it among African countries.
The meeting was also attended by among others the minister for Gender, Labour and Social Development Hon Frank Tumwebaze.
The African Regional Labour Administration Centre (ARLAC) has a mandate to strengthen the labour administration systems in member countries through training, research, consultancy, advisory services and publications.
This mandate is premised on the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Convention 150 concerning Labour administration (1978), which states that “the competent bodies within the system of labour administration should, participate in the development of comprehensive and concerted policies and programmes of human resources development including vocational guidance and vocational training.”
As a product of the ILO, ARLAC conducts capacity building activities for labour and allied ministries as well as employers’ organizations, workers’ organizations and other national and international stakeholders in support of Decent Work and sustainable development.
