Within the framework of the Austrian CEI Presidency 2014, the meeting of the CEI PD Parliamentary Committee was held in Vienna on 10 - 12 June 2014.

Under the title "Education as foundation for prosperity"  the gathering was chaired by Susanne Kurz, President of CEI-PD and Head of the Austrian Delegation to the CEI-PD.
 
The meeting of the CEI-PD Parliamentary Committee was attended by representatives of 14 CEI Member States: Albania, Austria, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Participants agreed that education was indeed the foundation for prosperity and expressed their conviction that a sound education was the best protection against joblessness. The need to adapt the educational systems to trends such as the increasing internationalisation and mechanisation of the workplace was strongly highlighted.
 
The meeting was complimented by visit to the TGM – Die Schule der Technik, a renowned school, which offered a practical insight into the Austrian educational system.
