4th PES BOARD Meeting Press conference messages - Foster collaboration to better respond to labour market challenges in Europe (Luxembourg, 14 December 2015) Management Board [14-12-2015 - 14-12-2015] (Croatia)
During their 4th Board meeting, which took place in Luxembourg on 14-15 December 2015 under the auspices of the Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the Heads of European Public Employment Services (PES) discussed and exchanged good practice on how to enhance labour market function. In view of current events, the PES Board has put the refugees situation at the top of its agenda. Another thematic priority is the discussion on how to tackle long-term unemployment and to better help long-term unemployed return to work.
“The refugee crisis is a new issue we have to cope with in Europe“, stated Frank-J.Weise, Chair of the PES Network, today in Luxembourg. „We want to exchange ideas and approaches from different countries on how to integrate refugees into the labour market. On the other hand, we won`t forget other stakeholders that need our support, too. We still have to tackle youth unemployment and long-term unemployment in many countries in Europe. And finally, we want to support employers to find skilled workers for their companies. All these goals are important to us – we won`t focus on only one aim.“
