Together, they discussed not only the current state of Slovakia's digital competitiveness but also the real possibilities of fulfilling the framework agreement of the European social partners in the field of digitization. That the world is in the process of the fourth Industrial Revolution is an indisputable fact. The changes that these industrial revolutions have brought so far have had a radical impact on employees. A large part of the jobs has disappeared, but an even larger part has been created and others have undergone a significant change in qualification requirements.
