The CEO of the National Institute of Professional Technical Training (Infotep)Rafael Santos Badía, proposed to the members of the Central American Parliament (Parlacen), prepare a bill with the aim of standardize the training curriculum in the region.
The initiative was part of the presentation made by Santos Badía before the Plenary Assembly of Parlacen where he spoke about “Revolution 4.0 and Central American integration”.
“In this way, we create a large global labor market, with people who will have equal knowledge and opportunities to access the labor market,” said the director of the governing body of the National Technical Training System in the country.
In his presentation before the Parlacen Assembly, Rafael Santos Badía also pointed out that integration provides a more effective environment to address those challenges that compromise the well-being of the population of the member countries of the Central American Integration System (SICA).
Santos Badía cited among these challenges the development of local markets for goods and services, the fight against poverty and inequality, the protection of natural resources, the prevention and management of disasters, the fight against organized crime and the adequate insertion in the extra-regional political and economic sphere.
