By Moses Ebosele  
   Labour and Employment Ministers from G-20 have agreed to advance decent work, enhance employability, and generate adequate job opportunities.
 At the end of a two-day meeting in Beijing, Chinese Minister of Human Resources and Social Security, Mr. Weimin Yin closed the two-day meeting in Beijing with the adoption of a Delaration on Innovation and Inclusive Growth: Decent Work, Enhance Employment and Adequate Job Opportunities.
  A statement issued by ILO said: “The Declaration stressed that “productive employment and decent work are the foundation of the livelihoods of people across the world”. Action to create more quality jobs was seen as “an indispensable factor for strong, sustainable and balanced growth”.
The statement explained that the  Ministerial Declaration, which will go forward to the G20 Summit in Hangzhou on 4-5 September, was welcomed by Guy Ryder, Director-General of the International Labour Organization (ILO): “Ministers have provided a strong bridge of practical policies that link the demand and supply sides of the labour market and of the economy as a whole. This will help to arrest and reverse the slide into a slow growth trap,” said Ryder.
