human-capital-1human-capital-2Human capital is one of the building blocks of society and has a substantial influence on competitiveness. Regions with a well-educated and highly-skilled workforce have a competitive advantage due to increased productivity and innovation. With an ageing population and changing labour market improving human capital through both education/skill development and growing our working age population through immigration will be imperative for NLs continued economic success.
