Luxembourg - OECD economic survey 2017 - August 31, 2017

The OECD published its biannual survey with thematic chapters on skills and the integration of migrants. The country’s economic performance is robust thanks to its services sector, its fiscal policies and openness to global talent. The pace of job creation is strong and benefits not only residents but also cross-border workers and immigrants. To reduce reliance on the financial industry the government should further develop its long-term strategy focusing on new digital technologies and renewable energy. Supplying the skills needed in new sectors will require further improvements in the education system, with a focus on lifelong learning. Better alignment of skills with labour market needs would entail reorienting labour market policies from supporting job creating towards funding training programmes to facilitate the reallocation of labour.
