The aim of the Colombo Process is to provide a forum for Asian labour sending countries to:
- Share experiences, lessons learned and best practices on overseas employment.
- Consult on issues faced by overseas workers, labour sending and receiving states, and propose practical solutions for the well being of overseas workers.
- Optimize development benefits from organized overseas employment and enhance dialogue with countries of destination.
- Review and monitor the implementation of the recommendations and identify further steps for action.
The Colombo Process website outlines the steps for recruitment for overseas employment in participating Colombo Process states. See the full list of recruitment processes here.
