SCC TRADE MISSION TO HAMBURG FOCUS ON ROLE OF EDUCATION IN ECONOMIC GROWTH
[ 07-03-2013 ]
Scottish Chambers of Commerce Chief Executive Liz Cameron is leading a trade mission to Hamburg, Germany on 21 and 22 March 2013. Speaking at Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, Liz Cameron said:
“Germany has built a national business brand that is a byword for quality and technological excellence.
“This has been based on a history of investment in both industry and education. The German education system foregrounds technical and business qualifications.
“Scotland can learn from this – the success of a country that values vocational, technical and business education as highly as academic routes, and where young people are supported socially to pursue these routes.
“It is no accident that in a Europe of worryingly high levels of youth unemployment, Germany – with its emphasis on future employment in educating its young people - is suffering less than other countries.”
