The leadership of major global industry associations calls on G20 Employment Ministers to do more in tackling Covid-19 crisis.

Ahead of an extraordinary virtual meeting on 23 April 2020, G20 Employment Ministers are urged to remove bottlenecks to economic relief and increase financial assistance to enterprises worldwide in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

While the commitments made by the G20 during the Leaders’ Summit of 26 March are welcome it is regretful that the economic stimulus packages that were pledged are insufficient or have not yet reached the real economy, especially SMEs.

The International Organisation of Employers (IOE) joins with the International Air Transport Association (IATA), International Road Transport Union (IRU), International Apparel Federation (IAF) and World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) in making this declaration to the G20 ministers.
