Policy day media lunch

Policy day media lunch
June 27, 2014

Bloomsbury Publishing and the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) hosted a media lunch at the Universidad del Pacifico, Lima, on 27th June.

Over lunch, local and international press were introduced to IZA World of Labor as a rich resource for journalists writing about labor economics-related topics.

There were two short panels, followed by a Q&A. These were:

  • The Link between Skills and Labor Markets, with Education Minister Jaime Saavedra-Chanduvi, the acting vice president for poverty reduction and economic management at the World Bank;
  • Evidence-Based Labor Market Policies with the Minister for Employment Promotion Edgar Quispe.

The lunch followed the 9th Annual Conference on Employment and Development, in partnership with IZA and the World Bank (25-26th June 2014), and a policy day on Education and Labor Markets (27th June 2014).
