VATICAN CITY, FEB 25, 2006 (VIS) - Archbishop Silvano M. Tomasi C.S., Holy See permanent observer to the United Nations at Geneva, spoke on February 20 at the 94th session of the International Labor Conference (Maritime).

  During the session, which was held in Geneva from February 7 to 23, a convention on maritime work was approved, coordinating and updating the provisions of more than 60 earlier international instruments.

  Archbishop Tomasi expressed the hope that the conference would "provide 'opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work, in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity,' as the Report of the Director General has stated."

  The permanent observer called on States to ratify the Consolidated Maritime Labor Convention which, if "implemented effectively at the national level, will bring great benefits to the lives of millions of people over time, and be an example of good practice to the whole industrialized world."
