Manpower Policy and Problems in Greece. Reviews of Manpower and Social Policies No. 3.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
A full solution of the employment problems of countries in the stage of development now existing in Greece, to a great extent depends upon the possibilities of achieving the accumulation of capital necessary for the establishment of new industries and other investment. It is important for Greece to promote economic progress in the different regions so as to avoid an exaggerated concentration in the already over-congested present centers and the emigration abroad of the most dynamic elements of the young generation. Also in this context, proper manpower policies will be of importance so as to promote the improvement and necessary adjustment of human resources. The following is of particular importance: (1) a reorganized Employment Service with better information about the labour market for employers and employees, (2) vocational guidance and counseling, (3) vocational training facilities for young and adults, and (4) appropriate aids to economically desirable mobility. This would also include positive measures to promote the return and reintegration in the Greek economy of workers having acquired new skills and experiences abroad. Activities in all these fields should be part of any program for economic and technical assistance to Greece. (Author)
