Brown puts skills at top of global market agenda

The growth of a highly skilled workforce is the key to the future success of the UK in a global age, according to chancellor Gordon Brown.

To combat the competition from abroad, Brown said there needed to be a new long-term partnership between employers, employees and the Government, based on flexibility from employers and investment in education.

“The acquisition of skills by all – our mission to make the British people the best educated, most skilled, best trained country in the world – must become the shared desire of all British people, from parents and teachers to management and unions,” the chancellor said.
