A great opportunity for Europe
More than 1 million people have joined Europe over the last 2 years.
All over the continent, migrants and refugees are willing to settle in European countries and start a new life. Since this situation is unprecedented, urgent and long term actions have to be implemented at an international level in order to give opportunities to these populations.
Among youth and migrants
Unemployment rate among the 15-24 years old in Belgium, Luxembourg and in the Netherlandsis higher than for the average population (between 9,6% and 22%).
Moreover, in those three countries, unemployment rate is much higher for the foreign-born than that of the native-born. Those inequalities mostly come from a lack of skills and diplomas.
Lack of digital skills
Across all industries
Around three companies out of four consider the lack of digital skills as a hurdle to their digital transformation.
Currently, 700,000 IT professionals are lacking across all industries and an additional 150,000 IT experts will be needed every year.
Around 80% of companies say they observe a "skills shortage" in IT.
