Date: 1-8-2018. In the South Limburg labor market region, the ambition is to implement a common sectoral approach for tackling labor market challenges. The focus will be on the following promising sectors for the region:

  • Maastricht-Heuvelland (Customer Service, Manufacturing, Leisure Horeca)
  • Parkstad (Healthcare, Smart Services, Medical Logistics)
  • Western Mining Region (Automotive, Logistics, Technology)

The intention is to develop the most efficient and effective approach for these sectors. To this end, Aranco has developed six sector plans on behalf of the three central municipalities (Maastricht, Heerlen and Sittard-Geleen), including a concrete plan of action. The sector plans thus form the basis for the further project-based approach by the various relevant implementing parties. The starting point for this sectoral approach is that problems within a sector are always tackled as a joint problem of the entire labor market region. A second project phase has now started, in which the three remaining sector plans will be developed.
