G20 Labor Ministers Meeting

May 18, 2017 - May 19, 2017

The G20 Labor and Employment Ministers’ Meeting brings together labor and employment ministers from countries representing approximately 85 percent of the world’s global economy to advise G20 Leaders on the most pressing labor challenges facing workers. The Ministerial also provides G20 Labor and Employment Ministers with a chance to review global labor market challenges, discuss ways to maintain and create jobs, and exchange information on successful policies and programs.

Under the direction of G20 Labor and Employment Ministers, the G20 Employment Working Group (EWG) meets several times prior to the Ministerial meeting to discuss current labor issues and challenges and to negotiate the G20 Labor and Employment Ministers’ Declaration. To ensure transparency and accountability, each G20 country produces its own Employment Plan and Self-Reporting Template. This reporting mechanism allows governments to delineate their own countries’ labor and employment challenges and to describe the policies and programs in place to address those challenges. G20 countries must also report annually on progress towards meeting individual and collective G20 commitments.
