The ambassador said about his country’s childcare leave system, “We adopted a childcare leave system designed for both parents for the first time in the world.” He also introduced a system that guarantees 90% of the salary of someone who takes parental leave for 390 days. Some staff members of the National Personnel Authority listened to the online lecture.
