Colombo Process meet to highlight concerns of migrant workers

Nov 14 2018 | 04:42 pm

Kathmandu: The meeting of the Colombo Process is taking place in the capital from tomorrow to hold consultations on the common interests and concerns of the migrant workers and to discuss on international migration and work covenants. 
The government ministers, high officials and stakeholders from 12 countries are participating in the meeting which will hold vigorous discussions on the above issues.

Colombo Process is the common forum of labour supplying countries in the Asia region. It is a loose network set up with the goal of sharing best practices, learning and experiences regarding the foreign employment.

The main objective of the Colombo Process is to deliberate on the challenges of abroad employment and facilitating the labour-supplying countries and to propose practical practices for making the life of the migrant workers dignified.

Although the Colombo Process has prioritized collaboration on promoting the rights and interests of the migrant workers, protection of their facilities and services, exploring new destinations of foreign employment, promotion of the legal channel of remittance, development of managerial capacity of migration, data collection and inter-state foreign employment reform, this has not yet taken a concrete shape.

The Colombo Process was setup one and half years back.
