We know that the labor market in our country needs more than 500,000 employees compared to the current situation, over the next five years.

We learned that about 2 million active people are not found on the labor market or in the education system.

We find that, although children spend a lot of time in school, studies show that 42% of them are functionally illiterate and the drop out rate is among the highest in the European Union.

We see that poor outcomes in pre-university education affect the university environment and the labor market, and employers are unhappy with unprepared training that is not correlated with the economic reality of future employees.

Meanwhile, statistical data show that the number of retired people is rapidly approaching that of active workers.


It is a challenge to which the Federation of Associations of Energy Utility Companies - ACUE invites those interested and involved in decision-making on labor force vocational training to participate in the debate "Work in the future and the future of work: orientation and vocational Training, continuous training and change of career path" that ACUE organizes on July 10, at the 40th edition of the "Electrician’s Trophy" - the most important professional competition in the field of electricity distribution. The debate will take place in Iasi, at the International Hotel - Sofia Hall, between 11.00 and 13.30, with ACUE members, representatives of the central and local authorities with attributions in the subject of the debate.
