Decent work country programme for Lao People’s Democratic Republic 2017–2021

The 2017–21 DWCP for the Lao People’s Democratic Republic provides a five-year framework for cooperation between the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the national constituents (the Lao People’s Democratic Republic Government and employers’ and workers’ organizations).

The document represents the outcome of consultations that culminated in a final tripartite endorsement in Vientiane on 3 March 2017. It reflects the priorities of the national constituents as well as findings of a review of the DWCP 2011–15 and an analysis of decent work trends, opportunities and challenges in Lao People’s Democratic Republic.
