The future of work in Latin America and the Caribbean: a great opportunity for the region?
In this first issue of “The future of work in Latin America and the Caribbean” series, we approach this topic from a general perspective with the idea of offering a conceptual framework to set the coordinates for the debate. First, we address the two major trends that, in our opinion, will shape the labor market of the future: the technologic tsunami and demographic aging. Their potential impacts in the world of work, as we explain later, will be of great relevance for countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, of which we offer some interesting data to promote this conversation. Finally, we present what actions and strategies can be activated to face this still uncertain scenario. *For a correct visualization of this note, we recommend using the free programs Adobe Reader and Flash Player.
