Short Description
EURES – T Beskydy is a crossborder partnership established between 3 new EU members´ states: Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia.
The main aims of the partnership are:

• to inform about living and working conditions,
• to provide information about trends on the labour market in the cross – border regions,
• to promote exchange of vacancies among these regions,
• to provide entrepreneurs with information about EURES/EURES-T services (taxation, social system, recruiting of workforce from the other side, information about registration system – how to start own business behind the border etc.),
• monitoring and overcoming the obstacles of mobility.
Job mobility: the main stream of workforce flows towards Czech Republic. Number of Slovak workers in border region of Czech Republic by 30 June 2007 was 8279 and number of Polish workers in this region was 3856.
