More than 11 countries, including India, are expected to participate at a meeting in Manila in Philippines to discuss the responses to the current economic crisis.

Ministers of labour and finance, senior UN and government officials, workers and employers' representatives from Asia and the Pacific will meet in Manila from Feb 18-20 for the forum titled "Responding to the Economic Crisis - Coherent Policies for Growth, Employment and Decent Work in Asia and the Pacific", a press statement issued by the International Labour Organisation said on Monday.

The forum is one of a series of similar regional events that will feed into a high level meeting on the economic crisis called by the ILO's governing body, which will take place in Geneva March 23.
