The Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation (BCCEC) was recently represented among the 5,000 delegates from around the world that flocked to the International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland this month to adopt and oversee compliance with international labour standards and discuss important issues of concern to the world of work. Job provision for growing and aging populations, sustainable development, social dialogue and recession recovery are a few of the topics addressed during the 102nd session hosted by the International Labour Organization (ILO).
