European Dialogue on Skills and Migration
After the introduction and keynote speeches, three parallel workshops were held on ICT, Health and Entrepreneurship and were moderated by experts in the field. Furthermore, accent was put on the private sector as crucial factor in further development. Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, Mr Dimitris Avramopoulos pointed out that European Commission would like to strongly support dialogue with private sectors but actions which private sector can take to create benefits for all in the process, for those who arrived as well for the receiving countries. Europe is ageing societies and we need to develop but also attract skills we need to boost competitiveness. Promoting entrepreneurship of migrants is crucial.
Idea is to create a long-standing dialogue with different private and public sector stakeholders on the issue of labour migration and labour market integration of third country nationals. That way they will increase visibility of the economic opportunities and the potential of well managed labour migration and labour market integration as an instrument for growth. In the end they made a parallel between demographic and economy sector and their cause-effect relationship.
Event gathered 120 experts from all over Europe. SEECEL, as an entrepreneurial learning engine for South East part of Europe is always happy to attend these kind of events an was represented by SEECEL Director Ms Efka Heder.
