The European Parliament and the Council have reached an agreement today on the modernisation of the Directive on professional qualifications. “The modernisation of this directive is an important measure in our strategy to relaunch the European economy. In creating a more efficient system for recognition of professional qualifications, it will contribute to dealing with the labour shortage in Europe and will come to the aid of highly qualified job seekers, in particular the young”. Statement by Commissioner Barnier.
