Opinion of the Employment Committee on the Europe 2020 flagship initiative "the agenda for new skills and jobs"

The Council endorsed the opinion of the Employment Committee (EMCO) concerning the Agenda for new skills and jobs; the EMCO appreciates the integral and comprehensive approach of the Agenda, which also covers labour supply and demand, and stresses the importance of creating more gender-equal labour markets in the EU with equal conditions for women and men.

The four main objectives of the agenda are:

  • a new momentum for flexicurity, reducing segmentation in the labour markets and supporting transitions;
  • equipping people with the right skills for employment;
  • improving the quality of work and working conditions; and
  • supporting job creation.
