Panel discussion 2: Progress in extending social protection in Asean countries
Following the adoption of the Social Protection Floors Recommendation, 2012 (No. 202), many member States of the ILO have acknowledged the importance of social protection in their development agendas and made significant progress in the extension. In this context several ASEAN countries have taken measures to extend their social protection systems. In some cases the schemes are universal, in others the schemes are targeted towards the poorest.
