Talent pool Asia: Tackling Talent Shortage in the Global Economy

About

Friends of Europe is partnering with the German Asia Pacific Business Association (OAV) for this important debate.

Skills shortage has emerged as one of the most pressing issues for companies across the globe, but its causes and coping strategies vary in different regional contexts. Building on the output of the conference “Talent Pool Asia – Gender Diversity as Success Factor for German and Asian Enterprises” held on 7th March 2014 in Hamburg, OAV – German Asia-Pacific Business Association and Hamburg Chamber of Commerce continue and expand the dialogue between Asian and German business leaders on strategies to overcome the global skills shortage.

Asia is home to some of the youngest populations in the world, and by mere demographics will be an important source of qualified workforce for the global economy. As German companies with a strategic interest in Asian markets act more and more globally, they increasingly depend on the “Talent Pool Asia”. Absorbing all talent in the labour market, irrespective of gender, cultural background and other characteristics, requires both, the acceptance and enhancement of diversity in organizational culture as well as creating skilling systems which ensure employability and opportunity to young generations. Both of these interrelated issues will be conceptualized and debated in keynote speeches and panel discussions.
