The Business Mechanism, coordinated by the IOE, is the ideal platform to enhance public-private dialogue and deepen the engagement of international companies in the development of migration policy. Endorsed as a permanent feature of the Global Forum on Migration and Development, the Business Mechanism articulates the priorities of the private sector and brings its expertise in promoting more transparent, effective and humane migration policies, taking into account labour market needs and economic perspectives.
The Business Advisory Group, in collaboration with its partner Japan Tobacco International (JTI), hosted a Business Meeting on 3-4 April 2017 to discuss four business priorities in migration debates. These topics include:
The meeting in April was held in two parts:
  • 3 April: Business Workshop : Define the business contribution to the international migration debates
  • 4 April: Dialogue with all GFMD stakeholders (Governments, International Organizations and civil society)
