This publication is a country-specific report accompanying the latest release of Cedefop’s skills forecast. The report covers a period some 10 to 15 years ahead and offers an estimate of the expected developments in a country’s labour market, bringing together key trends identified. Specifically, the report provides a general overview of employment and labour force developments, employment trends for different sectors, and a detailed breakdown of future job openings in different occupations. The differences between the future needs in skills demand and the forecasted supply are also analysed. The Cedefop skills forecast was developed before the global COVID-19 pandemic. Given the uncertainty of the short-term economic effects of the pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns in many countries, the short-term forecasts presented in the report are likely to be over-optimistic.
