Austria has a history of one of the lowest unemployment rates in Europe.

In fact, the European Union assigned an unemployment rate of 4.9 percent to Austria for 2013, giving it the lowest unemployment rate across the European Union. Although labor market dynamics continue to shift, Austria remains vigilant in tackling this pressing social issue and the Austrian Pubic Employment Service (AMS) plays a major role in preventing and reducing unemployment in Austria.

What factors contribute to Austria’s low rates of unemployment? How does Austria’s dual educational system factor into it? What is the Austrian Public Employment Service doing to enhance the way it does business? As part of my inaugural conversations with global leaders series, Dr. Johannes Kopf, Managing Director, Austrian Public Employment Service, shares his insights on these topics and more. The attached is an http://www.businessofgovernment.org/sites/default/files/Insights Kopf.pdf">edited excerpt of our discussion on The Business of Government Hour. Dr. Kopf is the first in what I hope will be a series that introduces our readers and listeners to government executives across the world who are changing the way their governments do business.
