Cabo Verde has been “very slow” in implementing decent work, Said João Carvalho

City of Praia, Oct 03 (Inforpress) – The president of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (ISSO), João de Carvalho, considered today, in Praia, that Cabo Verde has been moving “very slowly” on the issue of implementing decent work.

João de Carvalho made this statement while speaking to Inforpress about the 5th National Conference for Decent Work, to be held on 6 October at the Main hall of the City Council of Praia, under the slogan “Entrepreneurship with Dignity”, to celebrate World Day for Decent Work on 7 October.

The president of ISSO, who advocates analysing and evaluating the country in this area, also said that it is necessary to fulfil the commitments to the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in this area.

“We have seen several accidents at work and even deaths, which is why we believe that it is necessary for the rightful supervisory body to have a greater presence on the ground so that we can achieve decent work,” he said, declaring, on the other hand, that the country is on a trajectory “towards decent work” that needs to be implemented.
