Analysis of the main LMSI using broad range of labour market organisations. It follows the general principle to provide a single organisation collecting information on LMSI that is easily accessible to all other stakeholders involved. Simple, but often not done.

It is likely to continue. So far it seems to provide a platform of exchange generating "processed" LMSI.
