DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion and China’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security will meet on 25 and 26 September in Brussels to discuss evolving industrial relations and its impact on sound working conditions and wage developments.
Experts will exchange fresh evidence and in-depth analysis on the role of key labour market instruments. Social partners from both sides will be present and contribute to the discussion.
The EU-China cooperation and dialogue in the area of employment and social affairs has strongly developed over the past decade. The purpose of this dialogue is to mutually learn from and understand each other.
On one hand, China has put the development of a well-functioning welfare state and effective labour market at the top of its political agenda, and is looking with great interest at the EU practices and experiences. Similarly, it is of high EU interest to follow and understand the transformations taking place in one of our major global partners and to promote EU values globally.
Participation is by invitation only.
