Hatzidakis: The First €300M for Training from the Recovery Fund in Autumn

ATHENS — Labour and Social Affairs Minister Costis Hatzidakis announced on Saturday the launch of training programmes, amounting to 300 million euros, by the autumn, in the context of the radical reform for the modernization of training, which is included in the National Recovery and Resilience Plan.

Based on the plan of the labour ministry, emphasis will be placed on the development of skills required by the labour market, such as digital skills, but also in sectors that need digital upgrading, such as tourism and retail.

The specific proposal of the labour ministry that was included in the plan for the utilization of the resources of the Recovery Fund generally promotes investments in the training and retraining of the labour force, with emphasis on digital skills.

According to the competent ministry, this reform is a top priority, taking into account the fact that, in our country, there is a mismatch between skills and needs in the labour market.

"The plan of the labour ministry for the Recovery Fund aims to help the Greek economy to meet a global challenge: the acquisition of modern skills, which are necessary in a rapidly changing world, in order to strengthen the competitiveness of our economy and enable the employed and the unemployed to claim a better future, equipped with the skills that the labour market demands today," Hatzidakis said to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency, announcing the imminent launch of programmes.


ATHENS - The European Commission has revised its forecasts for the Greek economy downwards, envisaging a GDP growth of 3.
