Published on

Romania is taking active measures in the field of employment to be able to offer decent jobs, more and better paid jobs, as well as an inclusive society, said the Minister of Labour, Simona Bucura Oprescu, on Thursday.

According to a press release sent to AGERPRES, the Minister of Labour participated in the Inaugural Forum of the Global Coalition for Social Justice, an event held on the sidelines of the 112th International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland.

„Romania joined the Global Coalition for Social Justice mainly because it shares and supports the values it promotes. And we believe and act for equal and fair treatment, respect for human rights and rights in the world of work. Economic growth must be found in the increase in the standard of living of each citizen. Romania takes active measures in the field of employment to have more and better paid jobs, as well as an inclusive society. Other major objectives are aimed at the development of the economy sector social protection, the intensification of social dialogue and the increase in the level of coverage of collective bargaining. We are building a future with social justice for all!” said the Minister of Labour, in the press release.

According to the same source, the forum was opened in the presence of Antonio Guterres, UN Secretary General, and Nicolas Schmit, the European Commissioner for Labour and Social Rights. Only 14 EU member states are partners of this Coalition, including Romania.

„Our country has already taken important steps to improve working, living and social protection conditions, the measures taken by the Government led by Marcel Ciolacu having notable effects in the national economy. According to official data, only two states – Romania and Brazil – have recorded this year an improvement in terms of their country rating. Romania’s performance is all the more important as 13 countries in the world faced a worsening of the country’s rating this year,” the statement added.

Currently, the Global Coalition for Social Justice includes 71 governments (including 14 of EU member states), 82 trade unions, including from Romania, and 32 employers.
