Budapest, December 13 (MTI) – The Economy Ministry and the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Regional Office for Budapest organised a seminar on legitimate employment and work safety in Budapest on Tuesday, the ministry said on the government’s main kormany.hu portal.
In his address to the seminar, economy ministry state secretary Péter Cseresnyés called for strengthening cooperation between labour inspectorates and social security authorities at the European Union level, arguing that tackling undeclared work is a shared interest of EU member states.
Cseresnyes said the global economic environment had changed and that innovation-based business models contributed greatly to the changes in labour markets. The acquisition and constant development of digital skills has now become a precondition for entry onto the labour market and for keeping jobs, he said.
Topics discussed at the seminar included legitimate employment, the European platform aimed at tackling undeclared work as well as the EU’s Healthy Workplaces for All Ages Campaign.
