Policies addressing skills imbalances in France

As skills imbalances can be costly for individuals and societies, countries try to reduce them by implementing policies that steer the demand for and supply of skills. The demand for skills can, for example, be influenced by industrial policy, while education and training policies, as well as migration policies, can alter the supply of skills. This chapter documents the policies that have been implemented in France to tackle skills imbalances.
