By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, April 5 (LINA) – The Senior Specialist on Fundamental Principles and Rights at the International Labour Organization (ILO), Sophie De Coninck, has praised the government for the Technical Validation of the National Action Plan to Eliminate the Worst Forms of Child Labour in the country.

The document, the finalization and subsequent endorsement of which she anticipates soon, was validated in February this year.

Addressing the opening of the ongoing four-day training workshop for Labour Inspectors and enforcement agencies, De Coninck said the ILO looks forward to pursuing its collaboration with constituents and other partners in the country for its implementation when finalized and endorsed by government.

She described the training as one that is not in isolation, but is rather part of a larger collective effort to combat child labour.

The ILO specialist wants the training to be considered as a contribution to the implementation of the National Action Plan on Child Labour.

The ILO-funded four-day training workshop is part of Pillar Two of the plan which also includes law enforcement, education and direct action, she noted.

Topics being discussed include: Issues facing child labour inspections in Liberia, Child Labour in Liberia, Physical safety of inspectors, how to prepare for child labour inspection, inspection visit strategies, the most common hazards facing child labour in Liberia.

The workshop will end with a technical session on Friday, after which participants will make presentations.
