WAPES-ILO-STPS seminar on youth employment, Cocoyoc, Mexico

08.11.2006 to 09.11.2006

WAPES’ regional activity was celebrated in the framework of the 28th Annual Meeting of the Mexican National Employment Service plus a range of concurrent activities. This was an excellent opportunity to work on the same stage with experts from other international institutions, such as the Organization of American States, the 14th Inter-American Conference of Ministers of Labor, the Inter-American Development Bank, representatives from the European Commission and the Canadian government. The central theme was the promotion of employment among the youth population, which is the largest sector of the labour force in the countries of the Region America in terms of the use made of this demographic factor in regional development. This series of operations was followed by the Study Visit to the Mexican National Employment Service.
