We’re somewhat short

Raw materials are short. The suppliers demand a national strategy for raw materials, and it seems slightly mad, that you can pass a kr. 165 billion infrastructure plan, without making sure, there’s rubble and sand available.

Skilled apprentices are also short – so short, that the PM is backing away from the promised 500 apprentices on the Fehmarn project.

And – oh yes – we’re still short on skilled labour and a stable, secure energy supply. Apart from that, we pretty much have what we need. Hav a nice weekend and thank you for reading.
