As part of the institutional development of the Confederation of Employers of Uzbekistan (CEU), an international conference is being held with a focus on Decent Work as a basis of a stable society and of effective and inclusive social dialogue among national and regional partners. In conjunction with this conference, UNECE is organizing a workshop on the topic of “Advancing the transition to sustainable and circular business models” for improved compliance with Decent Work requirements in the garment and footwear sector, which demands verifiable production data, delivered through supply chain traceability and transparency. The event will be held in conjunction with the first Tashkent International Investment Forum, taking place from 24-26 March 2022.
The overall purpose is on one end to contribute to the establishment and reinforcement of social dialogue in Central Asia and to strengthen the role of business organizations and associations in Central Asia (Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan) as social partners for politics, business and enterprises; and on the other end to train regional actors on the tools they need to drive action on Decent Work and circular approaches on a wide scale, to better access market and investment opportunities for sustainable development.
