Limburg is strategically located within the Euroregion. But we are not reaping suff icient benefits from this due to poor infrastructure. Voka - Limburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry is therefore putting the improvement of our transport options by road, rail, and water high on the political agenda – through the press as well as through direct contact with policymakers.
There will be no economic growth without the right people. We must therefore guide our unemployed people towards the right jobs. But that alone will not suff ice. The huge group of inactive people, who are not looking for work at the moment, must also be activated. We have suggested a range of reforms to make this happen. It is also crucial to prepare our young people for the labour market in the best possible way. We do this by promoting technical courses, making ‘dual learning’ the best form of learning, and removing barriers to further education.
Our vision of creating space to do business is clear. Limburg is a green province, but this should not stand in the way of our development opportunities. The optimal and strategic use of the available space will allow industry and nature to comfortably coexist.
