Representatives of Austrian Trade Commission, Nordic Chamber and AmCham visited the Ministry of Science and Educatio and met with Minister Divjak and her team.

The Bilateral Chambers' initiative in 2018 position paper recognized the importance of linking education system with market needs.

Dual education program will soon enter experimental phase. For the start it will be focused on four occupations and even though it will reference Austrian, German and Swiss model where it has been successfully practiced, it will have specifics of the local environment. Chambers' delegation invited Mr. Vlado Prskalo, Assistant Minister to present the new model to the business community represented at the chambers. AmCham informed the Ministry that lack of practical work and knowledge is noticeable at the level of university graduates as well and closer cooperation between education system and business is needed. Mr. Praskalo invited chambers to participate in working groups organized within the Ministry of this topic.
