Mozambique introduces measures to contain public officials’ expenses
Speaking in Maputo on Friday, Mozambique’s Labour, Employment and Social Security minister Vitoria Diogo underlined the need for ongoing changes in the Labour Law as a way of keeping the country’s economy competitive.
She made her plea during the first annual session of the Consultative Committee on Labour (CCT), a body that brings together government, trade unions and employers.
Minister Diogo said that changes in the Labour Law, in force since 2008, aimed to make the economy more competitive, through the creation of decent working conditions, an incentive to work culture, and more production and productivity.
“Partial changes of the Labour Law already under way, will focus our attention,” she added.
Vitória Diogo challenged the government’s social partners, employers and workers to continue and deepen the debate with their associates, ensuring changes were in line with the needs of work and companies.
Ongoing changes, she continued, should reflect the wishes of workers and employers in order to promote a business-friendly and harmonious environment for legal labour relations.
“The consensus that we are going to achieve will help bring realise the programme of governance, promote employment and social protection, and improve the business environment,” the minister said.Source: Lusa
