According to the Swedish Ambassador to Ethiopia and Djibouti, Torbjorn Pettersson, “In connection to this symposium, Sweden would like to announce that it will finance an initial phase of three years JLMP project with a total of USD 9 million. In addition, Sweden is also providing support to the AU via IOM to retain the existing capacity of AU in terms of technical assistance.”

The programme focuses on critical areas for facilitating free movement of workers as a crucial means of advancing regional integration and development in Africa. Long-term, the implementation of the JLMP is expected to: extend dignified work and social protection to migrant workers and their families, strengthen regional integration and inclusive development, encourage employment, productivity, productive investment and business success, enable better social and economic integration of migrants, effective labour and social protection mechanisms, and sustainable labour market systems.
