The Centre welcomes the Ambassador of Afghanistan
On 23 and 24 February 2017, the Afghani Ambassador, based in Rome, paid a visit to the Centre.
His Excellency Waheed Omer, Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, met with our Director and Programme Managers. They discussed the project “Promoting rural youth employment in Afghanistan through entrepreneurship education and vocational training” and the Supporting Initiative for the promotion of decent work in situations of fragility.
The aim of the project, which targets young women and men in rural areas, is to promote youth employment in Afghanistan through entrepreneurship education and skills development. The ITCILO is working to strengthen the institutional capacity of ILO constituents and other ILO stakeholders in Afghanistan.
