The meeting focused on the increasing leadership role international companies are taking in promoting work-based training programs. Apprenticeships in particular are viewed as a key solution to the growing need for a skilled workforce. Representatives from companies, such as MTU America and Buhler as well as the Representative of German Industry and Trade shared their experiences in developing company-driven skills programs in the U.S.
