Today, some 50,000 multinational enterprises and their 450,000 affiliates employ over 200 million people throughout the world. Their impact is felt in virtually every facet of industry, trade, services and business activities. In 1977 the ILO’s Governing Body adopted the Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy to guide and inspire the conduct of multinational enterprises and how they relate to host governments and employers’ and workers’ organizations. The principles of the Declaration reflect good policy and practice in such areas as employment, training, conditions of work, safety and health, and industrial relations.
