New Zealand's Focus on Job Skills Part of a Multi-Pronged Crisis Exit Strategy

"If we think about the way in which the world will pull out of the crisis, and already is, the real danger we face is that those people who have skills will get jobs relatively easily, but those without skills may not," said Phil O'Reilly, Chief Executive of Business NZ in an interview with ILO TV. "The Global Jobs Pact has helped us come up with some concrete policy recommendations and actions, that we've taken in New Zealand around, for example, the issue of skills."
