Economic Competitiveness and Labor Reform in Argentina: A Conversation with Labor Minister Jorge Triaca

Event Co-sponsors

Labor reform is a central component of Argentine President Mauricio Macri’s reform agenda, designed to modernize the Argentine economy and increase competitiveness. The proposed reforms seek to reduce labor informality, address gender inequalities, increase access to youth employment and reduce labor litigation. Following significant tax and pension reforms last year, the labor legislation is the government’s top priority, and is being closely monitored by foreign investors.

Please join us on Tuesday, April 10 at 3 p.m. for a conversation with Argentine Minister of Labor, Employment and Social Security Jorge Triaca, who will discuss Argentina’s labor market, its shifting union landscape, and recent progress increasing employment and reducing poverty.
