The Committee on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations of the International Labor Conference (ILC) has lifted Egypt from the blacklist of countries violating international agreements on labor freedoms.
The committee expressed satisfaction with the measures that Egypt has taken after two revolutions to ensure that its laws are compatible with international standards of the organization.
Commenting on the move, Minister of Manpower Nahed al-Ashry said that Egypt respects the international agreements and recommendations signed in this regard.
"We are working to make our legislations in line with the international agreements," she said.
The committee has examined 25 individual cases of problems in the implementation of labor rights and one case of significant progress.
