The Moroccan employers’ body (CGEM), represented by Hicham Zouanat, chairman of its social commission, has been elected member of the Governing Body of the International Labor Organization (ILO).

The votes cast last Wednesday by the employers’ delegates representing the employers of the 5 continents made it possible to elect the members who will represent them within this Governing Body, the executive body of the ILO, for the 2021-2024 term, said the CGEM in a press release.

These elections were organized on the sidelines of the international labor conference, considered as the “international labor parliament”, said the same source, specifying that the conference, which was initially scheduled for June 2020, had been postponed to the period between on June 7 and 19, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This year, this event was held remotely under the presidency of Morocco. Representatives of governments, workers and employers from the 187 member states of ILO attended the meeting to discuss issues relating to the field of labor, social issues and the human-centered post-Covid recovery.
