NWPC joins the workshops for the 14th ASEAN Forum on Migrant Labour

The NWPC joined the national tripartite preparatory workshops for the 14th AFML together with DOLE and ASEAN Member States on August 19-20, 2021 via Google Meet.


The 14th AFML carried the theme “Recovery and labour migration in the post pandemic future” and included sessions on: 1) Protection of migrant workers during the COVID-19 pandemic – Current situation and2) Recovery and the post pandemic future. The forum also discussed the progress of stakeholders in implementing the previous ASEAN Forum for Migrant Labour recommendations.


Moreover, the forum shed light on the new and emerging COVID-19 related challenges faced by migrant workers and stakeholders, and discussed longer term shifts in labour migration governance and reform that will better meet the challenges anticipated in the region in the medium term.


The AFML is a platform for the review, discussion and exchange of good practices and ideas between governments, workers’ and employers’ organizations, and civil society on key issues facing migrant workers in Southeast Asia. Every year, AFML develops recommendations to advance the implementation of the principles of the ASEAN Declaration on the Protection and Promotion of the Rights of Migrant Workers.
