Three principles:

Job quality is key to reduce poverty, develop middle class, boost domestic markets

Strong institutions are vital for addressing inequalities

Social protection is an investment in society (not a cost)

Three areas for action:

Reduce vulnerabilities and disparities

Navigate crises and volatility

Ensure fair wages/incomes, distribution
