Today, Minister of Labor and Social Welfare, Skender Reçica, hosted a delegation of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development and representatives of German GIZ in Kosovo.
As a topic of discussion was the situation in the labor market in Kosovo, where the minister informed them about the current situation, policies and efforts of MLSW for increasing employment in the country.
The minister asserted that: "MLSW, through citizen involvement in active labor market measures and provision of vocational training in our training centers, is trying to alleviate unemployment in the country and create opportunities for our citizens to become part of the labor market".
Also, the minister announced that MLSW is making maximum efforts to make seasonal employment agreements with several EU countries and beyond, saying that it is expected to have the first agreement soon. At this point, the minister demanded cooperation from the German government so that we could have a similar agreement between Kosovo and Germany.
The Minister thanked the German representatives for the co-operation and support that Germany is giving to Kosovo and at this point received promises from German representatives that they will assist the Government of Kosovo where it is needed.
