Technical Seminar on Social Security Coverage Extension in the BRICS Countries

17.–18. September 2013 | HangzhouChina

This Seminar is being organized by the ISSA Focal Point for Chinese Members and is hosted by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of the People's Republic of China.

The objective of this Seminar is to promote exchanges and cooperation in extending social security coverage to the rural population, informal sector as well as migrant workers among the BRICS countries. As Brazil has achieved significant advances in social security coverage extension in recent years, especially in terms of facilitating coverage extension through enhancing front-line services, this Seminar will be an opportunity to not only showcase your own innovative measures and good practices but also to keep abreast of what has been done in the other four countries so as to explore and define areas for potential bilateral and multi-lateral exchanges and cooperation.

The seminar is open to staff of ISSA member organizations from the BRICS countries and invited participants only.

The working languages of the seminar will be English and Chinese.
