Within this scope, we, as the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, organized a two-session conference with ILO Office in Ankara on May 12th, 2017. We had the opportunity to share views, suggestions and expectations about the future of working life with all the relevant social partners and representatives of the business world, especially by devoting the second session of the Conference to the ILO's Future of Work Initiative.”
