Exchange of Workers Among Nations Proposed to I.l.o.

June 17, 1937
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An exchange of skilled workers among nations needing laborers which other countries can supply was proposed by M. Escabar, the Cuban representative, addressing the directors of the International Labor Office.

Mr. Escabar read the text of a resolution adopted by the Cuban Congress proposing the establishment of an international organization to draft measures regulating international immigration.

Latin American countries, he said, are badly in need of skilled workers from Europe and find it necessary to modify existing laws prohibiting immigration of laborers when the laborers meet the requirements of the countries’ industries.
