Ylva Johansson to visit Chile
On 21–25 November, Minister for Employment and Integration Ylva Johansson will visit Chile, accompanied by representatives of Swedish trade unions and employers. The visit is a follow-up to President Michelle Bachelet’s State Visit to Sweden earlier this year, and the main aim is to exchange experiences on labour market issues and the Swedish model.
During her time in Chile, Ms Johansson will visit several operations, including the Chuquicamata copper mine and the ALMA observatory in San Pedro. She will also meet representatives of the non-profit organisation Fundación Sol, which conducts research into working life in Chile, and the Confederation of Production and Commerce (CPC), an umbrella organisation for Chilean business.
On 24 November, Ms Johansson and the Swedish social partner representatives will speak about the Swedish labour market model at a seminar on labour market issues organised in cooperation with Chile. Ms Johansson will also meet President Bachelet and other representatives of the Chilean Government.
