Cyprus Recovery and Resilience Plan – Axis 5. Labour market, social protection, education and human capital


The fifth Αxis focuses on the development of the required skills and competencies in the existing and future workforce, so that it responds effectively to the demands and trends of the modern labor market, according to its current and future needs, including those arising from the green and digital transition. The proposed reforms and investments are in line with relevant European initiatives and priorities.

The axis also includes reforms and investments to address labor market weaknesses related to the need to facilitate market entry, especially for women with children, to improve the availability and accessibility of early childhood education and care, and to create a network of childcare facilities. It also aims to increase employment for young people outside of work, education or training (NEET).
