At the 17th Franco‑German Council of Ministers in Berlin, Permanent State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs Jörg Asmussen and France’s Minister of Labour François Rebsamen held a bilateral meeting.

At the 17th Franco‑German Council of Ministers in Berlin, Permanent State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs Jörg Asmussen and France’s Minister of Labour François Rebsamen held a bilateral meeting to discuss current challenges and joint initiatives at European level.

In particular, State Secretary Asmussen and Minister Rebsamen have agreed to work together to promote mobility in the European labour market and to advocate for the rights of workers posted abroad as well as for fair competition between companies in Europe. They also want to improve participation opportunities for young people and the long-term unemployed. To this end, the existing cooperation between the employment services of both countries is to be intensified.
