The memorandum represents the framework for the extension and strengthening of the institutional relations at multilateral level. It will contribute to promote an understanding of the different labour inspection national systems and practices in the sub-region (including policies, strategies and tools to address compliance problems), to encourage information-sharing between national labour inspection services based on their experiences when monitoring the implementation of the legislation, and to develop a virtual space for a rapid exchange of information to assist in cross-border enforcement.
