The GCC states pursue their drive to achieve social justice, combat all forms of discrimination and ensure equal opportunities on the labor market, said director of public relations and information dept. of the Kuwaiti public authority for manpower.
Asil Al-Mezyed told KUNA on Tuesday, that the delegates of the GCC states to an ILO panel discussion affirmed that their countries' joining of international conventions, conferences and symposia on social justice attests to their care for this issue which falls in the framework of the UN millennium development goals.
The discussion was held by the International Labour Organization (ILO) Committee of the Whole for the Evaluation of the Impact of the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization, 2008, as part of the 105th Session of the annual International Labour Conference.

"The State of Kuwait and the other GCC member states made headway in meeting their commitments pursuant to targets of the declaration and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development," she added.
The Conference being held between May 30 and June 10, will culminate in the World of Work Summit, due on Thursday, June 9.
