Tackling the Global Talent Gap #GSx2013
06 Jul 2013
   

The next global skills challenge is about tackling the massive imbalances and skills gaps that exist between developed and emerging economies, skills mismatches which hold back productivity, competitiveness and development. Skills mismatches obstruct mobility essential to quality and productivity improvement in business and inward investment. The conference looks at the experiences and policy dilemmas of G7, BRICS, MENA and Gazelles country models, transnational companies, and key global business sectors. It will see the publication of new research on the factors critical to improving vocational and technical education mobility.

Skills are the new global currency. This ground-breaking event will investigate new approaches to tackling skills mismatches, including the recognition and validation of skills from an industry and transnational perspective.

INSSO will publish a seminal report on Transnational Skills Standards, a major contribution to the global debate.
