Goodbye 2020, and welcome 2021!
With this Newsletter, we close 2020 from the RIAL / OAS, a year that brought us many challenges and that leaves the Americas in one of the most difficult moments in its history.
 
The Ministries of Labor of the region responded very quickly to the pandemic and, together with workers and employers, continue to propose alternatives to face the employment crisis and build the foundations of a "better normality." From the RIAL / OEA we accompany and support these developments with new products, such as the Portfolio of Responses to Covid-19; and we continue to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experiences through virtual activities, convinced that cooperation is essential in the current circumstances.
2021 presents us with new opportunities to rethink public policies, deepen cooperation and strengthen regional dialogue to place the region on a path of growth with inclusion. A path that allows us to solve deep inequalities and guarantee more rights, more decent work and more sustainable enterprises. The XXI Inter-American Conference of Ministers of Labor (IACML) of the OAS in September, 2021 in Buenos Aires, will be a great opportunity to work towards that.
 
We wish you a Happy Holiday season and a 2021 full of health, prosperity and well-being for you and your loved ones.
