Skills contribute to migration and to development, and this project focus was on the skills' of returning migrants. The purpose was to increase the transparency (readibility) of skills in the labour market, aiming at better matching between supply and demand. Recognition of skills acquired in non-formal or informal manner (outside schools) motivates people to learn and companies to position themselves in a better market niche. Social partners' involvement was a precondition for skills' needs identification and better quality of education and training in future. There is a direct link to the national strategy Moldova 2020.
