    This action built on previous technical support provided by the ILO Caribbean to the Ministry of Labour of Suriname, notably on building the capacities of staff to enhance the outreach to employers. The action delivered technical support in two steps. First, the actual integration of the Public Employment Service network into the policy framework targeting improved labour market intermediation was assessed by Belgian and Dutch experts. Then, experts from Belgium and France organized and delivered training to the staff of the Ministry of Labour and of local PES addressing the most prominent capacity and organizational needs (relating to outreach and communication with employers and job-seekers) as to improve the provision of support services tailored to employers’ needs.
