A diverse set of long-term policies and priorities are needed across different countries in the fight against skills mismatch. In developing and emerging countries, continued investment in basic skills is a prerequisite for tackling widespread underqualification and skill shortages inhibiting economic development, whereas in advanced economies, the improvement of the quality and responsiveness of education and training provision is paramount. However, overall skills development and matching policies should be seen as an integral part of a broader set of actions that include employment, industrial, investment, innovation and environmental policies.
