Technical Support Network to Employment Services in Latin America and the Caribbean
Inter-American Development Bank
The development of a country depends to a large extent on its labor force, and public employment services play a central role so that people can find good jobs and companies can get qualified workers according to their needs. The Inter-American Development Bank created the Red SEALC in 2009 to support the efforts of Latin American and Caribbean governments to build and strengthen their public employment services. The initiative aims at improving the labor opportunities for workers and increasing the productivity of businesses and countries. The Red SEALC finances programs so that public employment services can learn from the successful experiences of countries within the region and the rest of the world. The international cooperation includes training programs, workshops, technical assistance provided by government officials, and consultations from international experts.
