Goal 8: Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all

Indeed, even before the current emergency, the worldwide economy was developing at a more slow rate than in earlier years despite upgrades in labor efficiency and joblessness. The pandemic has suddenly and significantly disturbed it, driving the world into a downturn. The extraordinary stun to the world's work markets is required to bring about a reduction of around 10.5 per cent in total working hours in the second quarter of 2020, equal to 305 million all day laborers. Little and medium undertakings, laborers in casual business, the independently employed, everyday breadwinners, and laborers in areas at the most noteworthy danger of disturbance have been hit the hardest.

The accompanying examination ventures have been explicitly adjusted to Sustainable Development Goal 8, and the intent to advance supported, comprehensive and manageable monetary development, full and profitable business and fair work for all. These undertakings and activities are instances of the University's commitment to the SDGs.
