The Pacific Alliance Shared Virtual Training Portal was launched

December 10, 2021.- The Pacific Alliance presented this Friday the Shared Virtual Training Portal, a space aimed at acquiring the necessary job skills for the tourism sector, digital and linguistic skills, as well as essential competencies for other areas, such as trade and marketing and entrepreneurship, in order to promote the reactivation of the region.

Adela Maestre, representing the pro tempore presidency of Colombia, emphasized the importance of strengthening tourism activity, given its sharp decline both in the PA countries and on a global scale as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the purposes of this new platform.

«It is achievements like these that give meaning to integration and allow our citizens to feel that the efforts made by governments translate into concrete benefits for them,» added Maestre.

The initiative was led by the Technical Labor Group (GTL) with the support of the European Union Program for Social Cohesion in Latin America – EUROsociAL.

Janet Ortega, GTL Coordinator, also stressed that, with this platform, «we want to promote the strengthening of the employability of the region’s workers and thus ensure that they are prepared to adapt to a changing labor market, favoring, when necessary, their labor mobility and with it, their social welfare».
