G20 Labour and Employment Ministerial Meeting

September 15, 2014

A large and persistent shortfall in the number and quality of the jobs being created in G20 countries is affecting prospects for re-igniting economic growth, according to a report entitled G20 labour markets: outlook, key challenges and policy responses, prepared by the ILO, the OECD and the World Bank Group for the G20 Labour and Employment Ministers meeting took place in Melbourne on 10-11 September 2014.  Despite some recent improvement, slow recovery from the financial crisis means that many G20 economies still face a substantial jobs gap, which will persist until at least 2018 unless growth gains momentum. http://www.ilo.org/wcmsp5/groups/public
