Many voices (economists, European Union and World Bank experts, Romanian and foreign entrepreneurs, multinationals, consumers, etc.) deplore he rarity, low skills or even the lack of good professionals in various fields, from agriculture to retail, from arts and crafts to high technology. Old, new, and emerging reasons account for this situation, from the never-ending changes in the educational system to the massive emigration (and almost zero immigration/ remigration). What is the Government doing to address and possibly solve these problems? What is the private sector doing? What are the results, the prospects, the policies, the legislation, the projects, the visions?
