The Employment Committee (EMCO) and the Heads of Public Employment Services (HoPES) organised a conference to discuss the 'Challenges and opportunities for employment vis-à-vis demographic changes' in Warsaw on 10-11 October.

The first plenary session focused on 'demographic tendencies and forecast in Europe' and led to a discussion on the impact of the changing age structure of workers on the current and future employment policies.

The main conclusions of the workshops submitted by each of the Trio States (Poland, Denmark and Cyprus) were presented in the second plenary session.

In the third plenary session invited guests expressed their views on 'effective policies against ageing labour forces – to avoid barriers, grasp chances'.
