In order to help informal operators in the agriculture and fisheries sectors transition to formal standards of labour, Jamaica’s Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce (MIIC) has signed an agreement with the International Labour Organization (ILO).
The 15-month ILO programme aims to improve the efficiency as well as capacity of workers in three target industries:
- Household services
- Fisheries through various interventions.
Providing tangible support for people in these sectors, the ultimate aim is to allow them to transform their livelihoods from subsistence activities to economically sustainable employment.
