Hold a reporting “event” to involve relevant ministries

In Panama, a seminar was held for the purpose of engaging ministries in reporting preparation.

It is reporting that in Panama, the involvement of ministries not directly responsible for ILS reporting can sometimes pose challenges. A seminar on the subject of international labour standard being reported on was recently planned and held with representatives from relevant other ministries in order to get their involvement in the reporting process.

Use social dialogue to resolve issues

In Panama, social dialogue on report contents is used to resolve issues.

It is reported that in Panama, successful social dialogue is seen as a way to resolve issues arising from the application of ILS before they are taken to the ILO. So, although there are challenges faced in dialogue, the benefit derived from resolving issues through the process are seen to be important, and worth the effort.
