Strengthening Skills in Latin America: Developing Solutions

  • SCI Belgrave Square, 14/15 Belgrave Square, London

Latin America faces a challenge to boost competitiveness by addressing the region’s productivity gap. But with every challenge comes an opportunity. Supporting a transition towards higher productivity levels, which in part requires strengthening the region’s skills, will be key to the region’s prosperity and well-being.
