A technical cooperation comprising of a visit by three experts from the Ministry of Labor and Social Security (MTSS) to Santiago de Chile to advise the Chilean Labor Directorate on the protection of migrant workers, given their recognized experience and knowledge in this area, is taking place in Santiago de Chile.
This cooperation is particularly relevant considering the increase in numbers of migrant workers in Chile in recent years, as well as the decision of the Government of Chile to implement during 2017 a Plan of Action on Migrant Workers, based on an institutional self-diagnosis and strategically aimed towards establishing foundations for an institutional, transversal and permanent policy of the Labor Directorate in the matter.
The visit from the experts will transform into work sessions and training with teams from the Chilean Labor Directorate on the subjects mentioned in the specific objectives. (see agenda enclosed)
