EYEAFRICA TV: Geneva, SWITZERLAND: South African president Cyril Ramaphosa is in Geneva, Switzerland, where he is attending the 108th session of the International Labour Conference later this afternoon.
He co-chaired the International Labour Organisation’s Global Commission on the Future of Work alongside Prime Minister Stefan Löfven of the Kingdom of Sweden.
Mr. Ramaphosa, who became President following the resignation of Jacob Zuma in February 2018, has led a team of distinguished Commissioners mandated to make recommendations in response to changes in the global economy brought on by technological advancement, demography, globalization and climate change, over the past years.
Previously an anti-apartheid activist, trade union leader and businessman, Mr. Ramaphosa will deliver the keynote address at the high level sitting of the 108th session of the Conference where the outcomes of the Global Commission on the Future of Work will be presented to Heads of State and Government.
South Africa re-joined the International Labour Organisation 25 years ago following years of isolation as a result of apartheid. President Ramaphosa is accompanied by the Minister of Employment and Labour, Mr Thembelani Nxesi, and a delegation of the National Economic Development and Labour Council (NEDLAC).
