President Zourabichvili: “ILO Cooperation with Georgia should not come from Moscow Regional Office”

President Salome Zourabichvili held a meeting with the Director-General of the International Labour Organization, Guy Ryder.
During the meeting, she mentioned that the International Labor Organization should not coordinate its cooperation with Georgia through its Regional Office in Moscow as Georgia is an associate member of the European Union and it is not a member of the Commonwealth of Independent States.
 
As President Zourabichvili stated, there is no argument for using the ILO’s office in Moscow to cover Georgia, as the office is meant to cover member states of the CIS. President Zourabichvili proposed an initiative to cover Georgia via the Central and Eastern Europe Office, located in Budapest.
 
The latter announcement was done by President Zourabichvili during her meeting with the ILO Director-General at the United Nations office in Geneva, before the beginning of the 108th Session of the ILO.
During the meeting, the implementation and development of European standards in labor was discussed.
President Zourabichvili talked about the current situation in the occupied territories. She noted how regrettable it is that citizens living in Georgia’s occupied territories cannot benefit from the achievements and prosperity of Georgia’s reforms. Following the meeting, the sides exchanged gifts.
Director-General Ryder hosted the Georgian delegation at an official reception held for the highest-level delegations.
