During her presentation, she talked the audience through the employment and social policy priorities of her government.
The overall objective of the upcoming Presidency lies on mitigating the social and economic consequences of the crisis while improving working conditions. Within that scope, the Slovenian government defined two main priority areas:
- Quality work for quality life
- Life cycle approach to inclusive recovery and demographic challenges
The first priority area covers issues that are linked to the personal well-being of workers. This ranges from safety and health at work to flexible working arrangements and adequate pay for work while respecting social partner autonomy.
The second priority area has issues as equal opportunities for all children, combating cyber violence and empowering persons with disabilities at heart.
Mrs Ribič mentioned the importance of a responsive and reliance labour market and linked it to a successful and fair social and economic recovery. The link between agile and responsive labour markets and a successful recovery has been made by Ceemet in its Recovery Plan for a competitive industry in a resilient Europe report too.
