INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS

FKE

International Labour Organization (ILO)

The International Labour Organization (ILO) is the only tripartite U.N. agency, since 1919 the ILO brings together governments, employers and workers representatives of 187 member States, to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes promoting decent work for all women and men.

The ILO aims to ensure that it serves the needs of working women and men by bringing together governments, employers and workers to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes. The very structure of the ILO, where workers and employers together have an equal voice with governments in its deliberations, shows social dialogue in action.  The ILO encourages tripartism within its constituents - employers, workers and member States, by promoting a social dialogue between trade unions and employers in formulating, and where appropriate, implementing national policy on social, economic, and many other issues.

 

International Organization of Employers (IOE)

The International Organisation of Employers (IOE), the largest network of the private sector in the world, represents the interests of employers in social and labour matters at international level. Since its creation in 1920, the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) has been supporting and representing the worldwide business community in international labour and social policy forums across the multilateral system, and in other high-level forums such as the G20, with the aim of ensuring that such policy promotes the viability of business.

In meetings of the International Labour Organization (ILO), including its Governing Body and International Labour Conference, the IOE acts as the Secretariat to the Employers' Group. Today, the IOE is proud of its membership of more than 150 national employer organisations from all over the world including the Federation of Kenya Employers.

 

Business Africa

Business Africa seeks to enhance the business voice in continental bodies such as the African Union Commission, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, the ILO Regional Office for Africa, the African Development Bank and other continental bodies. Business Africa will also build on relations developed within the United Nations system, the IMF, the World Bank, the WTO and others.

In addition to pursuing its relations with European and American business groups, Business Africa aims to build partnerships with business federations from emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil and Russia. It is important that African business is represented in a much more coordinated way during economic summits that bring together Africa and emerging markets.

Business Africa also seeks to strengthen regional integration to boost intra-African trade. The development of rail, road and energy projects through PPPs to facilitate trade and business links is a key objective.
