Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
stern | [Hubertus] Heil also appeals to parents in the fight against labor shortages, 20 May
The President of the German Confederation of Skilled Crafts, Jörg Dittrich , recently encouraged young people to take up training in the trades - there are currently almost 40,000 training positions vacant.
Heil also announced, together with business, a strategy for recruiting workers in countries "where there are more young and well-educated people than the local labor market can absorb". To do this, he will travel to Brazil with Baerbock in June, he told the " NOZ ", because there the labor potential in the care sector is very large. In addition, there are agreements with Indonesia and Mexico.

Heil said the government would "proceed very sensitively so that we do not take away from any country the workers that it needs itself". The country of origin also benefits, for example from the commitment to on-site training.
