UEL and its members take note of the results of the national electorate’s vote. On the basis of this democratic choice, the challenge now is to reach a forward-looking coalition agreement. UEL and its members are optimistic that the elected representatives are aware of the socio-economic challenges they will have to face during their term of office.
Against a backdrop of slowing economic activity, declining competitiveness and stagnating productivity, UEL and its members would like to point out that Luxembourg is facing a number of structural challenges, in particular :
- Labour shortages and a changing employment and business market
- The acceleration of the digital, energy and environmental transitions and the increased need for innovation
- Public infrastructure and services under strain
- A structural shortfall in the supply of housing
- Unsustainable public finances and social security systems
