Project Description
This project seeks to improve the integration and provision of services for labor mediation for employment seekers and businesses in Chile. To do so, it seeks funding from the IDB to revise the governance model of labor mediation services (servicios de intermediación laboral, SIL), adjust the SIL's services and restructure its administration, and create an information system for the labor market and increased understanding of the sector. The project builds on a series of previous projects: CH-L1064, CH-T1120, CH-L1095, CH-T1175, and CH-T1179.
Investment Description
Chile is requesting support to reform SIL policies in two disbursements of up to US$50 million, the first in September 2017, the second in March 2018. The Bank also estimates that, to design the project, it will need US$32.402 for missions, US$12.800 for workshops y US$68.000 for consultancies. Chile
