State of Delaware secondary Archives: on Foreign Policy


Jack Markell: World now is more global; more productive; more competitive

This is the world we now live in. Around the country, companies are producing more than ever, but as a result of productivity gains, they sometimes do so with fewer people.

This is the world we now live in. There are 3 billion people in the world today looking for jobs, but only 1.2 billion jobs available.

This too is the world we now live in. More global. More productive. More competitive. It is a new world of unprecedented opportunities--to create new partnerships, to sell to new customers, to innovate and collaborate in ways previously unimaginable.

But it is also a world with new and formidable challenges--to attract and retain employers that have more options than ever; to educate our children to higher standards of job readiness; to invest in the future as we care for an aging population.
