Interview with Project Coordinator Daria Akhutina
Baltic Sea Labour Forum is one of today five flagships in the portfolio of PA Education, with CBSS as the flagship leader. Currently the flagship is under reconstruction. PA Education together with CBSS with support from the Swedish Institute implement a Baltic Leadership Programme (BLP) focusing on labour mobility.
BLP – labour mobility has been launched 30th of November in Gdansk and will be implemented further on in 2017, continuing in Malmö at the end of January, finalised with a 3rd module in June 2017 in Berlin back-to-back with the EUS BSR Forum. The programme gathers some 30 participants representing trade unions, employer organisations, state agencies and cross-border services. The result of the programme will be recommendations on how labour mobility can be supported, identifying and removing hindrances but also how the return of needed labour force can be supported, so called “brain circulation”. These recommendations will be ready to be presented at a Round Table in June 2017, also involving the Ministers of Labour and Employment.
The number of steps is going to be taken in order to ensure the renewing process of the BSLF, namely, the updating of the member list of the BSLF’ steering committee, consideration of the inclusion of the additional topics and policy areas which are on the top of the Agenda BSR and Europe wide such as - demography, migration and skill supply (labour market research and forecasting).The thematic groups in the framework of the BSLF should be updated accordingly.
The relevant solutions for the funding of the future BSLF’ activities on a sustainable basis will be considered in the nearest future.
