Subject to ratification, the agreement is expected to enter into force in 2018.

This is one of the results of the regional core Labour Standards Plus (CLS+) project launched in 2016 by the Friedrich-Ebert Asia Foundation. The objective of the project is to promote and develop binding labour standards in trade and global value chains. .
