ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

The ICFTU established regional organizations to strengthen operations in the various geographic areas. The regional organizations were to promote harmony and cooperation between all types of trade unions which were free agencies of the workers. While they enjoyed a high degree of autonomy, they were at the same time responsible to the ICFTU for their actions. The Asian Regional Organization had jurisdiction in all the countries of Asia and the Far East.
The regional organization was to:
1. Secure new affiliations
2. Assist existing trade unions and promote the establishment of new ones.
3. Organize regional conferences and discuss problems
4. Coordinate activities
5. Collect and distribute data about working and social conditions
6. Advise the ICFTU on regional problems, implement its policy and carry on publicity for it.
