The Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities (DG EMPL) of the European Commission will organise a conference entitled 'Employment in Europe 2008' in Brussels on 25 November 2008.
This will be the third in a new series of 'Employment in Europe' conferences following the first conference organised in November 2006.
Similarly as in previous years, the aim of the conference is to present and discuss the key findings of the Employment in Europe 2008 Report, which will be released in November.
The Employment in Europe Report is the main tool of the DG EMPL for the analysis of employment performance and labour market developments in the European Union and the Candidate Countries and has been produced annually since 1989.
It provides the basic analytical and statistical background to underpin the Joint Employment Report as well as other instruments key to the European Employment Strategy.
