THE COMMITTEE OF THE REGIONS



- reminds the European Commission that local and regional authorities often are largely responsible for implementing policies relating to employment, education and training. The territorial dimension of these policies is thus of vital importance. The Committee therefore regrets that the Commission's communication does not contain a specific reference to the competences of local and regional authorities;

- welcomes the measures contained in the Compact for Growth and Jobs. The Committee of the Regions stresses the link between the Compact and the growth-generating programmes contained in the multiannual financial framework (MFF) 2014-2020, especially under heading 1 - sustainable growth;

- encourages the Member States to take account of the European Commission's guidelines in their National Reform Programmes, with particular regard to the issue of flexicurity, which poses a challenge for the European labour market;

- considers it important to encourage forms of self-employment and individual enterprise, giving special attention to start-ups by young people. This could be a more efficient way of using resources that would otherwise be spent unproductively (costs of early retirement or unemployment benefits);

- proposes that regional and local authorities be involved more closely in framing policies to incentivise "green jobs", within national job plans

- welcomes the proposal to improve EURES, not least by introducing a Match and Map service providing a clear geographical overview of offers. On that subject, the Committee draws attention to the national and regional role of job agency schemes and suggests that these be better integrated with the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), the regions and Chambers of Commerce;
