Action Plan for Promoting Pakistan-Brazil Partnership under South-South and triangular Cooperation

The International Labour Organization (ILO) actively implements its SSTC Programme in close partnership with the UN system, particularly the UN Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC). The ILO’s participation in key forums, including the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation and the 2nd High-Level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40 – UNOSSC) in Buenos Aires, reflects its commitment to the principles articulated in these events. Additional guidance for SSTC is derived from declarations and summits of influential groups such as the Group of 77 and China (G77 + China), India, Brazil, and South Africa (IBSA), as well as Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS).

Within the context of the Group of 77 and China (G77 + China), South-South Cooperation holds particular significance for countries like Pakistan and Brazil. It provides a crucial avenue for addressing shared challenges, promoting mutual learning, and fostering cooperation. Adhering to the principles and recommendations of G77 + China, Pakistan, and Brazil, can utilize SSTC to enhance their development efforts, tackle pressing issues, and contribute to the overarching goals of sustainable development.

Like Brazil, Pakistan clearly understands that “South-South cooperation is not a substitute for, but rather a complement to, North-South cooperation, and developed countries must fulfill their commitments for North-South cooperation”. All this combined, provides a good ground for cooperation between Brazil and Pakistan under the SSTC approach. The ILO, an active flagbearer of SSTC, can catalyze this cooperation, particularly in the areas related to the world of work and decent work.
