The Chamber of Commerce presented its annual report on Tuesday, providing an in-depth look at continuous training measures.
In 2018, more than 20,000 people were registered for continuous training at the House of Training, director Carlo Thelen said on Tuesday morning. At the current time, about 2,000 young people are taking part in apprenticeships in 25 different professions.
Finding enough qualified people to work in the 90,000 businesses represented by the Chamber of Commerce is a significant challenge. As a result, the chamber is investing massively in training measures. The annual report was the first presented by Luc Frieden in his new capacity as the chamber's president. Frieden has been at the head of the institution representing businesses for a month now.
The chamber also presented its strategy running up to 2025. The main priority in this strategy is to advocate an adequate legal framework for the development of businesses alongside an open debate concerning the possibility to contribute towards the Luxembourgish economy.
