The manufacture of electronic equipment and apparatus should continue to rank among Czech industries with good prospects. In spite of this it is likely that the growth in employment will stop in 2009-2010. This will be the result of both the economic crisis and the halted inflow of foreign investment (the system of investment incentives has changed and, in the upcoming years, competing countries in Eastern Europe will be offering more attractive conditions for “green field” operations than those offered by the Czech Republic). The development over the longer term should be marked by stagnation or a slight decrease in overall employment.

As with mechanical engineering, there may be a problem as concerns workers who were retrained – in most cases in assembly plants of foreign investors – after the industries where they had originally worked (e.g. textiles, chemical industry) had run into difficulties.    These workers may lose jobs and the best opportunities for re-entering the labour market will be offered by non-manufacturing segments. Industrial companies will increasingly seek workers not only for manufacturing, but also for supporting services (logistics, customer services). However, these jobs will require different qualifications.

As distinct from this, there is a large job potential in microelectronics where the higher value added, good experience on the part of existing manufacturing companies and the rapidly growing demand guarantee extensive demand for labour force on the part of employers.  In the upcoming years there will not be enough graduates with upper secondary education and particularly those with tertiary qualifications entering the labour market so as to satisfy this demand.
