The morning session of the Ministerial will focus on how governments can “maximise resilience and learn from effective policies to cushion future economic slowdowns”. It will give Ministers the opportunity to discuss the unprecedented measures they have taken to cushion the impact of the crisis, and to share experiences about how to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of these measures, which is crucial to identify lessons for future shocks and economic slowdowns. Over lunch, Ministers will discuss the humanitarian implications of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. The afternoon will be divided into five parallel breakout sessions:
(1) Promoting sustainability and resilience: Rebuilding better and more sustainable jobs that benefit individuals, employers, sectors and places ;
(2) Promoting sustainability and resilience: Equipping individuals for a post-crisis labour market;
(3) Bringing all on board: Reversing increasing inequalities;
(4) Bringing all on board: Supporting young people; and
(5) Paving the way to the new workplace: Getting the most out of the digital transformation.
