Long overdue? Saudi Arabia joins international association for labor inspection
Saudi Arabia has formally joined the International Association of Labor Inspection (IALI) during the organization's 14th ordinary meeting in Athens on Tuesday.
In a statement to Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Abdullah Abu Thunyan, undersecretary for inspections and developing work environment at the Labor Ministry, said the Saudi membership in the IALI came within the framework of the ministry's keenness to raise the efficiency of inspections, taking advantage of IALI's experience.
The International Association of Labor Inspection (IALI) is the global professional association for labor inspection. It was established in 1972 and currently has over 100 members worldwide.
IALI has always worked in close partnership with the International Labor Office and other host country organizations, and is increasingly working at regional levels.
