Last Thursday, 26 March, a meeting in Gijón took place with regard to Asturian citizens living abroad in the face of the future challenges of the Asturian society. The meeting focused on two important aspects of emigration: young people and the role of diaspora in the internationalisation of the companies.
The event was organized by the association ‘Compromiso Asturias XXI‘, where lectures were presented by Pablo López-Álvarez, vice-president of the Chamber, and Ramón López-Peláez, manager of Programa Jóvenes.
The first one participated in the panel discussion ‘Emigration and international markets‘, where he joined other Asturian professionals residing abroad and presented his professional experience and point of view about the role of expatriates as information sources for Asturian companies interested in expanding internationally.
Meanwhile, Ramón López-Peláez offered his vision in the panel ‘Youths and international career‘, commenting the situation of young expatriates in Belgium and Luxembourg, the jobs in demand, as well as some successful tips for job hunting.
