The Commissioner Marianne Thyssen warmly welcomes the new PES Network Chair Johannes Kopf. She describes the PES Network as a ‘jewel’ in the world of employment.
It is indeed clearly a prime example of European collaboration at its best.
The Commissioner wishes Johannes Kopf and the Network every success and is looking forward to further collaboration, encouraging PES to continue with their work:
The opinions and contributions of the Network have always been invaluable input to my work. Employment services are closest to European citizens and can help shaping European labour markets. It is these days more important than ever: digitalisation, globalisation, demographic shifts and migration have a huge impact on our labour markets. Guiding citizens and supporting them to manage the necessary or desired transitions is a huge responsibility that PES are actively taking up.
