IOM, the United Nations Migration Agency has signed an agreement with the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia aimed at regulating and managing labour migration in the Caucasian nation.

It forms part of ongoing discussions with three European Union countries to regularize the position of Georgians working abroad and help them enhance their chances of employment on their return home.

"It is envisaged that this agreement will provide better protection of labour rights for Georgians abroad and enhance economic and social ties between Georgia and the countries where Georgian citizens will be legally employed," said Ilyana Derilova, IOM's Chief of Mission in Georgia.
