Handmade in Holland: workmanship and entrepreneurship in skilled trades

Abstract of advisory report Handmade in Holland, (2013/02)


With an annual turnover of 110 billion euros, the skilled trades are a vital link in the Dutch economy and society as a whole. In the next few years, however, skilled workers will be in increasingly short supply, mainly because fewer young people are opting to train for a skilled occupation. In an advisory report to the Dutch Government, the Social and Economic Council of the Netherlands (SER) is making recommendations to reverse this trend.
