Majyd Aziz, President EFP, will represent EFP at the 2020 Global Summit on the Future of Work in Kaula Lumpur, Malaysia hosted by the International Organization of Employers in association with the European Union, ASEAN Confederation of Employers and Confederation of Asia Pacific Employers.
The Global Summit on the Future of Work will take into consideration the concerns of business and workers to adapt and continue to focus on government shifts, new societal dynamics, and gig economy. These are important because existing jobs are being fundamentally re-designed or some jobs have ceased to exist.
This new paradigm is especially important for countries Pakistan because of the digitalization of the economies, modifications in the capabilities and skills required in the labor market. This would lead to better work opportunities, increased productivity, enhanced competitiveness and stronger economic growth.
Zaki Ahmed Khan, Vice President of EFP will officiate as Acting President during the absence of Majyd Aziz.
