The Inter-Regional Expert Forum on Skills and Migration in the South Asia – Middle East Corridor took place in New Delhi on 24-25 July 2017.

Skills eco-systems need to balance both domestic and international skills needs, not only the needs of countries of origin. The ILO has long been working on a series of issues relating to skills and migration. In particular, it has analysed:

  • the cost and time required to undertake skills training and certification, not necessarily resulting in improved wages or working conditions;
  • the fact that demand is not always driven by employer needs;
  • the need to assess skills acquired (particularly informally) in the country of origin and to ascertain skills requirements in the country of destination;
  • the lack of timely information from employers on labour-market demands and skills requirements;
  • the limited evidence of monitoring and evaluation systems.

To continue its work on these issues at global, regional and national levels, the ILO, in conjunction with the Centre, organized an Inter-Regional Expert Forum on Skills and Migration in the South Asia – Middle East Corridor. The purpose was to facilitate the sharing of research and practical experiences in the area of skills and migration, and to identify interventions that can be carried forward through ILO technical-cooperation assistance. The outcomes of the discussions will also feed into deliberations on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

The Forum invited views from global and regional levels, presented ILO analysis of skills-recognition systems and reflected on how the global picture applies to skills-and-migration practice in the South Asia – GCC Corridor. Special sessions for sharing perspectives and experiences of relevant programmes in South Asia and the Middle East were also included, to identify common challenges and responses, to formulate recommendations for interventions at country level, and for other regions to consider.

The participation of one senior staff member and two representatives of the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan was sponsored by drawing on funds from the project Promoting Rural Youth Employment in Afghanistan Through Vocational Training and Entrepreneurship Education.
