The Czech Republic’s state-mandated coordinator of preparations for EuroSkills was the Chamber of Commerce of the Czech Republic. She ensured that the Czech Republic returned to the European Championship in 2021 after 13 long years.

The event supports professional skills, increasing the prestige and quality of technical and other professional professions. It declares the level of the education system and practical teaching in each country.

Already in 2021, at the championship in Austria, Czech young talents in pan-European competition took 5th to 11th place in professions such as painter, tiler, truck repairman or refrigeration and air conditioning equipment technician.

“However, we are the only country in Europe where the government does not show any interest in supporting the national team, whether it is communication of this most prestigious competition held once every two years, promotion of Czech participation or at least material support or financing of the national team,” explained Roman Pommer the reason why the Chamber of Commerce decided to open an account through which people and companies can support the national team with their contributions. “The exception is the President of the Senate, Miloš Vystrčil, who is the only politician interested in the preparation of the Czech team for this championship, and even received the entire team on the floor of the Senate,” added Pommer. The Chamber of Commerce also turned to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, under which talent support falls, with a request for support. However, due to the conditions of subsidized titles set by the department, the contestants will not be supported in any way.
