Youth unemployment is one of Europe’s biggest challenges. Without urgent action to develop our young jobseekers into a skilled and experienced workforce, Europe's viability as an innovative and competitive market is at risk. Such an exceptional problem requires a coherent and coordinated response.
We build on our lengthy experience and expertise gained in financing both small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and the education sector in Europe, with continuous efforts to stimulate job opportunities and skills training for Europe's youth.
