OIC Public Employment Services Network (OIC-PESNET)

The OIC Public Employment Services Network (OIC-PESNET) is an OIC cooperation platform, which brings together representatives of Public Employment Institutions in the OIC Member States with a view to enhancing the technical cooperation among them through facilitating sharing and exchanging of experiences and best practices in this important domain and, thus, contributing to their efforts towards enhancing employability and reducing unemployment in their countries.

The Conference called upon the establishment of a forum among public employment authorities of OIC Member States to promote collaboration on the transfer of knowledge and experience, as well as to generate joint action towards enhanced employment services and overcoming common challenges in the field of employment.
