The conference will provide a perspective from the point of view of businesses of the need for a skilled work force in manufacturing as well as vocational and educational training (VET). Enterprises from both sides of the Atlantic will discuss the important role policymakers play to set up respective frameworks on a regional, state and national level.

A skilled and well-trained workforce is essential for the success of individual companies, for the prosperity of industrialized nations, as well as for attracting foreign direct investments. Skilled labor is capable of manufacturing top quality, innovative products for domestic consumption and export. The competitiveness of regions depends on their ability to provide a skilled workforce ready to serve latest industry needs.
