Matters arising out of the work of the 99th Session (2010) of the International Labour Conference
Part I of this paper deals with four cross-cutting issues that are guiding the immediate follow-up work of the
Office and its plans to implement the conclusions of the resolution concerning the recurrent discussion on
employment adopted at the 99th Session of the Conference. These are: strengthening existing areas of
work; responding to new priorities; promoting better national and international policy coherence; and
changing work methods. Part II takes up each of the six strategic employment themes covered in the
conclusions and describes initial steps taken by the Office and future plans to act on the main priorities
identified there to respond more effectively to the realities and needs of ILO Members.
