The article informs about the role of HR leaders in helping companies meet the challenges confronting Europe in the 21st century. Among the problems facing business are the ageing European population, integrating new members of the European Union, the growing competitiveness of China and India and the threat of a US economic slowdown, triggered by the U.S. government borrowing. In a conference on business success in Europe, Lord Patten, the last governor of Hong Kong, agreed that the EU was unlikely to achieve the targets of the 2000 EU Lisbon Strategy, which aimed to make Europe the most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010.
