the 2015 expert meeting on “Better Connecting the Skills System to the World of Work,” was jointly organised by the Kingdom of Cambodia’s Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training, the OECD, and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
The project will explore how local employment and training systems can best adapt to long-term challenges such as the transition to a green economy and demographic change. It will provide recommendations on how to enhance the flexibility of local policies so that local actors can collaborate on long-term strategies to build resilience in various economic and geographical contexts.

The Missing Entrepreneurs 2015 is the third edition in a series of annual reports that provide data and policy analysis on inclusive entrepreneurship. Inclusive entrepreneurship involves business start-up and self-employment activities that contribute to social inclusion as well as to economic growth, covering entrepreneurship activities by social groups such as youth, women, seniors, immigrants and the unemployed. The report contains data on the scale and scope of entrepreneurship and self-employment activities across EU Member States by social target groups, as well as the barriers they face. The report also contains special thematic chapters on supporting growth for entrepreneurs from disadvantaged and under-represented groups, effective coaching and mentoring, and the role of public procurement in supporting inclusive entrepreneurship. Each thematic chapter discusses current policy issues and challenges, and makes recommendations for EU policy makers. The report also provides inspiring policy-practice examples from each of the 28 EU Members.
