USCIB’s President and CEO Peter Robinson and Vice President for Corporate Responsibility and Labor Affairs Gabriella Rigg Herzog met with the President of the employer association of Costa Rica Gonzalo Delgado on September 4 in Washington to discuss shared priorities. USCIB Senior Counsel and ILO Governing Body Member Tom Mackall also joined the meeting.
The association—Unión Costarricense de Cámaras y Asociaciones de la Empresa Privada (UCCAEP)— is, like USCIB, an active member of the International Organization of Employers (IOE) and works to contribute to the socioeconomic development of Costa Rica through the support of a productive private sector. UCCAEP also promotes responsible entrepreneurship and enhancing the competitiveness of Costa Rica.
“As the U.S. employer representative to the ILO, USCIB is committed to effective engagement on matters of international labor concerns,” said Robinson, who also serves as IOE’s Vice President for North America. “Our meeting with Mr. Delgado centered on a productive discussion about areas of shared priorities and will serve to deepen employer engagement at the ILO and within the IOE.”
