During the last labor force work group meeting it was decided to identify two priority areas based on the labor force survey: Latvia as a career destination (attracting and retaining talent both domestic and international, including re-emigration) and skills development. Among key recommendations will be calling to create a comprehensive strategy and website for talent attraction.
