Priority of the Swiss Cooperation Strategy in Sri Lanka: Safer Migration for Development
The strategic focus is to improve the well-being and protection of labour migrants and their families. The main intention is to enhance the benefits of migration by reducing the social, economic and psychological costs. There are two main intervention areas:
- Supporting the Ministry of foreign Employment Promotion and Welfare to implement the National labour Migration Policy
- Provision of services to Labour Migrants and their families through Civil Society organizations:
- Developing and recognising skills of men and women migrant workers by empowering them in accessing decent work opportunities
The interventions strive to strengthen governmental structures and civil organizations for their participation in bilateral, regional and interregional policy dialogues.
