JOHANNESBURG - Business Unity South Africa (Busa) yesterday welcomed the appointment of President Cyril Ramaphosa as co-chairperson with Prime Minister of Sweden, Stefan Löfven, of the 28 member commission of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Global Commission on the Future of Work. 

The commission, made up of experts from across the globe, is assessing the rapid transformations taking place globally in the world of work, and identifying the key challenges and actions required. 

Busa said Ramaphosa’s appointment recognised the influence and contribution of SA to the global deliberations on the future of work. Busa stated that it had been working with the ILO and social partners over the past three years to evaluate the impact and opportunities emerging as a result of technological change, demographic shifts, globalisation and new, diverse forms of employment. Busa is the SA business representative at the ILO. Ramaphosa is expected to co-chair the next meeting on May 15-16 in Geneva.
