It takes decisions on ILO policy, decides the agenda of the International Labour Conference, adopts the draft Programme and Budget of the Organization for submission to the Conference, and elects the Director-General.
One of the major agenda items during this session will be the appointment of the Director-General of the ILO, with the term of the current Director general coming to an end a ballot will be held on 7th November to reelect the current holder Bro. Guy Ryder from United Kingdom or elect a new person.
