The following essay addresses labour problems in a number of Asian and African nations. Additionally, the ILO's role in resolving this labor problem is critical due to the conditions in many countries worldwide. According to the 2014 Global Slavery Index, India is first in terms of modern global slavery, with a high rate of modern slavery, especially in the recruitment of jobs with promises of non-existent work that are then sold for profit. As a result, it is important for the ILO to resolve the problem of labor welfare. The ILO's primary goal is to improve labor welfare. The ILO has taken many measures, including: ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families; and Collaborating with many Asian countries to secure migrant workers' interests, Conducting activities in support of migrant workers; developing services in support of migrant workers.
