National Action plan being developed for household workers and fisherfolk

The Government is developing a National Action Plan to transition household workers and fisherfolk to the formal economy.
 
The initiative is being spearheaded by the Ministry of  Labour through support from the International Labour Organization. 
 
A two-day consultative workshop was recently held at the Ministry's North Street offices in Kingston aimed at garnering the input of  various stakeholders towards the development of  the action plan.
 
Labour Minister Shahine Robinson in her remarks at the event, said in moving to formalise work arrangements in the fisheries and domestic work sectors, careful investigations must be done to establish the factors that drive informality.
