“The creation of the RIAL in Mexico in 2005 is, without a doubt, one of the IACML’s most important developments. Over the course of these 10 years, the RIAL has proved to be an effective tool to strengthen each country’s labor policies and programs, as well as to improve our Ministries’ human and institutional capacity. Moreover, the RIAL has fostered the creation of cooperation networks among technical specialists, enabling each country to identify the experiences that may help develop solutions to similar problems. We have a great challenge before us: to make even more progress and to build solid, concrete, effective, comprehensive, and complete results for our entire hemisphere. To do that, it is essential for the RIAL to be strengthened.”
