The UN General Assembly , in September 2016, adopted the New York Declaration, in which Member States committed to engage in a process of negotiations, leading to the adoption by the General Assembly in 2018 of a Global compact for migration (GCM). This instrument aims to improve international governance standards around migration. Global, regional and sub-regional stakeholders have been invited to participate in consultations. A report from this meeting will be submitted as part of those consultations.
This event will be the primary opportunity for employers in the region to understand what the GCM is, what its potential impacts are likely to be, and contribute their perspectives on the key priorities for business.
The event is organized by the Federation of UAE Chambers of Commerce, in cooperation with the UAE Mistry of Human Resources and Emiratisation and the International Organisation for Migration, in partnership with the International Organisation of Employers and the GFMD Business Mechanism.
