A highly skilled, adaptable and sufficiently large workforce is key to Ukraine’s resilience, long term recovery and modernisation. Targeted investments in people and policy interventions, including the promotion of digital skills and use of technologies, will play a central role in this process. In the context of the forthcoming Ukraine Facility, Commissioner Schmit and the Vice-President of the EBRD - Mark Bowman, together with other high-level speakers from the EU and from Ukraine, will highlight the importance of keeping a focus on empowering people through, especially, reskilling and upskilling initiatives.
