Towards a competitive cross-border labour market
Start date: Apr 30, 2010,
End date: Aug 30, 2011
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen socio-economic interactions in the border regions of Hungary and Croatia by stimulating the labour market mobility. The project aims at promoting the exchange of good practices between stakeholders concerned - public authorities and institutions, the social partners and the private sector, as well as the potential employees in the region. The priority of this project is to raise the low number of cross-border job seekers in the HU-HR cross-border area. The project is expected to improve the forecasting of labour market trends by providing tools for common analysis; raise capacities of the public sector for providing support to migrant workers by educating the employees in the public sector; and improve awareness on labour market needs through project visibility actions. It will ensure better matching of job skills with vacancies by using a joint web portal; and better matching of cross border demand and supply of labour by the exchange of information among the partners Achievements: The severed connections between the border communities were patched up and the loosened connections made strong once again by the eff orts made to increase the number of cross-border job seekers in what not long ago was, and which will soon be again, a borderless area. Impetus was given to the stimulation of labour market mobility by involving public authorities and institutions, social partners and the private sector, as well as the potential employees in the region.
