The 2nd Asia-Europe Meeting Labour and Employment Ministers’ Conference (ASEM LEMC2) that was held in 2008 in Indonesia, adopted the Bali Declaration on More and Better Jobs.

The Declaration recommended the conduct of projects to improve the exchange of experiences, expertise and good practice as well as enhance capacity building through technical cooperation.

One such area identified during the Conference was Occupational Safety and Health (OSH), in which Indonesia and Singapore will be taking the lead. Indonesia and Singapore will be co-organising an ASEM OSH workshop focusing on sharing good practices and experiences in the development and implementation of national OSH strategies.
