Italian Labor Minister Elsa Fornero was in Naples for a meeting with her German counterpart Ursula von der Leyen and Italian Education Minister Francesco Profumo. "I chose Naples to give a signal, a positive message to a city where the problems of our youth are very serious," said Fornero, who said that apprenticeships were the key for new graduates to transition into the workforce. "We need to aim for apprenticeships, where (young people) can learn on the job because often once they've left school and arrive in a company they can have a difficult time," she said.
