Concept of the Conference

Labor market efficiency is the key factor which contributes to boosting the economic activity and accelerating the process of development; therefore, any imbalance between the education system outputs and the demands of labor market will eventually lead to serious shortcomings in achieving the development goals. Efficiency of labor market depends on several factors, including: the extent to which the outputs of the education system meet the labor market demands in addition to the appropriate mechanisms that ensure the capacity of labor market to absorb the available workforce. The relationship between education system outputs and labor market demands is, hence, one of the topics that we should shed light on. Due to the significance of this matter, an international conference on education system outputs and labor market demands, entitled “Today's Challenges and Future Prospects”, is set to be held.
