NEW DELHI, July 29 (Xinhua) -- The BRICS countries have agreed to carry out cooperation in inclusive growth and providing social protection to migrant workers at a meeting on employment held here this week, said local media Friday.
The BRICS Employment Working Group said India has attempted to put forth some proposals for concrete collective action in the field of social security and research and capacity building for migrant labor, said local daily The Hindu.
"A broad consensus has been reached on social security agreement and networking of BRICS Labor Institutes. They will get fed into the forthcoming labor and employment ministerial document," the report quoted Indian Minister for Labor Bandaru Dattatreya as saying on Thursday.
The BRICS, which groups Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, will hold a labor and employment ministerial meeting in September here, prior to a BRICS summit in Goa, western India, in October.
