7th BRICS Meeting Concluded

Recently, India has organized the 7th BRICS ‘Labour & Employment Ministers’ Meeting. The meeting is chaired by the Union Minister of Labor and Employment of India.

The objective of the event is to deliberate on the impact of COVID-19 on the global labor market and to reach consensus on specific areas of cooperation among BRICS member countries.

An important aspect of the meeting was the adoption of the manifesto of the BRICS Labor and Employment Ministers. It focuses on the following 4 key areas:

  1. To promote social security agreements among BRICS nations.
  2. The formalization of labor markets.
  3. Women’s participation in the labor force.
  4. Gig and platform workers.
