Qualified and Motivated Workforce

A highly qualified workforce is key to economic competitiveness, as it helps secure the wealth of a society. The new federal states in Eastern Germany have a highly motivated, qualified and reliable workforce – with many workers qualified to carry out more than one job. As such, they belong to one of most flexible and best trained workforces worldwide.

Eighty-seven percent of the available labor pool in the new federal states have completed formal vocational training. Specific industry requirements are met by vocational colleges who work closely with business. Each year, around 80 thousand students successfully complete their studies in Eastern Germany.
