“Many contemporary rights derive from the profound commitment of the ILO to the full protection of the dignity of every single human being, wherever they work and whatever it is.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Cyril Ramaphosa, President of South Africa:
“For the ILO to continue with its valuable work, we need to re-affirm our commitment also to multilateralism. Although the ILO retains its unique character within the UN system, as the only organization that has governments, business and trade unions as equal partners, the global multilateral framework remains very fragile at the moment. The prospect of a looming trade war and other disagreements seem to signal greater global tension and polarisation.”

9.Various shots, Stefan Löfven, Prime Minister of Sweden
10.SOUNDBITE (English) Stefan Löfven, Prime Minister of Sweden:
“I’ve seen what social dialogue between workers, employers and governments can achieve. Both in relatively small things that could improve working conditions for me and my co-workers, but also for the company we worked for and for the society we lived in. But also in a bigger perspective, how it could transform the country that I represent today from a poor country at the outskirts of Europe to a rich country at the cutting edge of the global economy. Because social dialogue and tripartite collaboration are something so rare, as a solution where everyone wins.”
