    The Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security (MTEySS) is answerable to the Executive, whose mission is to provide citizens in its areas of competence. It is part of the governmental administrative structure for the implementation of public policies in the fields of labour and social security. It proposes, designs and administers policies in all areas of work, employment and labour relations, vocational training and social security. To build a common strategy with trade unions in order to tackle challenges faced by workers in a context of invisibility and high social vulnerability, the Ministry and social partners established the Vincente López Centre - “Centro de Formación para los Trabajadores y Empresarios de América Latina”. The Centre is unique in Latin America, being the first training centre dedicated to strengthening the capability of trade-union delegates and leaders of employer’s organisations in order to develop regional training strategies, to promote decent work and to enhance social dialogue. As part of the inauguration of the Centre a 5-day seminar was organised with the support of SOCIEUX+. This was the first official training session hold at the Centre. SOCIEUX+ mobilised European but also regional expert trainers to interact with representatives from the Confederation General de Trabajo, the Union Industrial Argentina and Technical experts and decision-makers of the MTEySS. The experts addressed key issues for informal sector policy making such as labour information systems, social dialogue and transition towards formality.

Upon an assessment mission which reviewed and provided the SSC-DF with recommendations on how to address the existing political and institutional processes associated with the extension of social protection coverage to the identified target groups. The needs however to implement these recommendations were beyond sole short-term technical assistance as what SOCIEUX could provide alone.
