Statement by President of the Republic of Cuba, in the OIT Global Summit, on July 8th, 2020.

Mr. Director General; Excellencies, Heads of State and Government; I feel honored to bring into this virtual Summit the voice of Cuba, a small developing country, where workers in power struggle on a daily basis to achieve all the justice, which was the dream and commitment of the founding fathers of our nation. Today, as has been always the case throughout the last 61 years, Cuba is sharing the new and serious challenges facing the International Labor Organization as it enters into its second century of its existence. The impact of COVID-19 adds to the challenges that the world of work was already facing under the tough rules of the market, which will have undeniably devastating consequences on the various crises generated by this pandemic in all countries’ economies. Unemployment has increased several times over. Lack of social protection is on the rise, and so are inequality and poverty. #Cuba #OIT Follow the link:
