National Commission on Labour (1967)||
21.34 The International Organisation of Employers (IOE) was established in 1920 to reinforce, at the international level, the activities of the larger national employers' organisations aimed at preserving and developing an economic and social system based on free private enterprise. One of the important tasks of the IOE is to assist employers1 delegations at the tripartite meetings of the ILO. A member of the general secretariat of the IOE has acted as secretary to the employers' group at almost every ILO meeting held since the ILO was established. The IOE also helps its member organisations to exchange mutual experience and facilitates the study of common problems and keeps them informed of labour and social problems the world over. The members of the IOE belonging to our country have often pleaded the cause of developing nations and emphasised the need for channelising the investible resources of the institutions affiliated to IOE into countries starving for want of capital. The contacts in the IOE have helped members from our country in reaching collaboration arrangements which have been in vogue in India, particularly since Independence.
