Any company that wants to be successful in the face of global competition will in future have to focus even more on factors such as qualification, competency, know-how and innovative capacity. This applies particularly to the automotive industry and its traditional markets in the West, if this is to remain competitive and meet the challenge of the new emerging markets. For this reason, we have to support all initiatives and programs that help in improving the qualification structure and contribute to professional training and continuing education that is needs-based and future-oriented.
