BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Jun. 17, CMC – Representatives from 19 Employers’ Organizations from the English- and Dutch-speaking Caribbean will participate in a regional forum entitled “Facilitating Participation of CARIFORUM Civil Society in Regional Development and Integration Processes”.

The June 22-24 meeting is part of an EU-funded Project1, implemented by the International Labour Organization (ILO) to strengthen the capacity of the Caribbean Employers’ Confederation (CEC) to play a greater role in regional policy making.

Participants will identify key issues of importance to Employers’ Organizations at the national and enterprise levels, to enable the CEC to effectively lobby and strategize on their behalf.

The organizations are expected to present areas of concern particular to their country. Some areas of focus include, Climate change and enterprise resilience, migration issues relating to  building a Caribbean Single Market Economy and productivity and competitiveness.
Other topics to be discussed at the Forum include Migration and Free Movement of Labour; International Trends Affecting Employers and their Organizations; and Social Dialogue Mechanisms.
