Around 53 percent of existing jobs could disappear due to the twin effects of digitalisation and greater use of robots, former prime minister and head of the current premier’s team of experts, Vladimír Špidla, warned at a conference in Prague on Monday. Špidla said the main challenge is to cope with the transformation and disappearance of existing jobs and prepare for new ones, especially in the services sector. A background study by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs suggests around 10 percent of existing jobs, around 400,000 posts, could disappear over the next 20 years due to the increased use of robots.
