Within the framework of the MATCH project, IOM Belgium and Luxembourg, together with the colleagues from IOM Senegal, will take part to the 2021 edition of the Forum de Dakar. The Forum is an event organised annually by a consortium of private and public organisations from Senegal and Belgium, and brings together stakeholders from the two countries to discuss topics of common relevance. This year's edition topic will be "Living in the city in 2030: investing, innovating, including". During the Forum, IOM will organise a dedicated workshop, presenting the MATCH project as an innovative solution to invest in the human capital between Senegal and Belgium, and foster more inclusivity in private sector companies. The workshop will feature testimonies from private sector employers and business associations.
