Welfare Development Plan 2016–2023

The Welfare Development Plan focuses on the strategic objectives of labour market, social protection, gender equality, and equal treatment policies for 2016–2023. The Development Plan provides a thorough overview of the main objectives, courses of action, and problems regarding those policies. The Development Plan was compiled due to the need to establish a unitary strategic basis for the policymaking of the aforementioned spheres, which would, at the same time, take into account the needs of people, society, and economy, the challenges arising from demographic and socio-economic trends, international commitments, and the capability of the state.
