Via its Surinam partner VSB (Vereniging Surinaams Bedrijfsleven) DECP was asked to conduct a workshop on national social security for members and deputy members of the Social Economic Council of Suriname, in which VSB is one of the major participants. This workshop took place from March 29 – 31st, 2010.
The SEC had taken the initiative to advise the Government on the preparation of a comprehensive social security system. Such a system is not yet in place in Suriname.
The workshop presented the SEC with views and insights on the subject that most certainly did not make their initiative any easier, basically resembles some kind of mechanical clockwork one can take apart and put together again without affecting society – in wanted and foreseeable as well as in unwanted and unforeseeable ways.
