The government reached an agreement with union and business representatives on Friday aimed to get refugees more quickly into the workforce.
The three parties reached an agreement on a 21-point plan to “increase employment focus” in local municipalities’ efforts to integrate refugees.
“This is about how we from now on handle the process between the asylum and the integration phases. What should the municipalities do differently? What are the challenges in the interaction between having a job focus while also supplying Danish language education,” Employment Minister Jørn Neergaard Larsen told reporters after the tripartite negotiations on Friday.
Under the plan, Larsen said that local municipalities must focus exclusively on getting refugees into work, even at the expense of learning the Danish language.
