THIRTY-FIVE government officials from various ministries are undergoing training to familiarise themselves with the International Labour Organization's concepts and processes.
The three-day training which ends today at the Holiday Inn in Suva is being conducted by the ILO Fiji office.
The participants also discussed the potential for an employment policy strategy for Fiji.
Some of the policies discussed included a pro-employment macro policy, sectoral strategies for job and growth, national poverty reduction strategies and sectoral policies and employment in the informal sector.
Addressing government officials, Naoko Otobe of the ILO's Employment Policy Department in Geneva said the policies were implemented with the view to stimulating economic growth and development.
"Employment policies take due account of national context and relationships between employment objectives and persuaded in accordance with the national conditions and practices," Mr Otobe said.
He told government officials that under ILO's agenda, decent work was defined as work undertaken in conditions of freedom, equality, dignity and human security.
