Invitation to the annual thematic meeting of the GFMD Business Mechanism (23 October 2018, Kuala Lumpur)


Dear Members, Dear Partners, 


We are pleased to invite you to the annual thematic meeting of the GFMD Business Mechanism on 23 October in Kuala Lumpur on “Business Perspectives on Regional Mobility: Learning from the Now to Shape the Future”. 


Please refer to the links in the side panel to access the draft programme and registration form. A logistics note will follow in due time.


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 GFMD, 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 meeting aims at compiling business input on labour migration and regional integration in Asia. The outcome will be presented at the GFMD Summit on 5-7 December in Marrakesh, Morocco.


Further details and the agenda for the meeting will be shared in due course and posted on the GFMD Business Mechanism website (event page).    


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you all at the meeting. 


Yours sincerely,


Stéphanie Winet

Head of Stakeholder Engagement,
GFMD Business Mechanism
