Enterprise Demography and Employment Dynamics
|Requesting country||Providing country|
The Secretariat of Labor of Honduras established the Labor Market Observatory (LMO) in 2007, to study and analyze that market and facilitate decision-making. As part of the Observatory, efforts are underway to develop indicators and generate statistics for analyzing employment trends and business demographics. Through the RIAL, Honduras requested advice from the Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Security from Argentina, which, by 2003, had already begun operating its Employment and Business Dynamics Observatory (OEDE).
Thus, an OEDE expert traveled to Honduras to provide direct assistance to the LMO team on methodological, statistical, and institutional aspects, and, working jointly with the team, developed a Work Plan for the business dynamics component in this Observatory. The technical assistance provided was tailored to the circumstances and needs of the Honduran Observatory, as the transfer of Argentina’s expertise facilitated the enhancement of this Observatory.
