Conclusions and recommendations

The subject of the Project relates to outstanding problem of all participating countries, because increasing exchange of labour force is unavoidable and problems have started already. Enlarged Europe and emerged court cases connected with opening the building market is sufficient evidence confirming the problem. Hence, inclusion of the Project in the overall Programme of Nordic Council of Ministers may be considered as a far-seeing decision.
