    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.

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.
