May 23 (Bloomberg) -- Germany’s opposition Social Democratic Party has proposed a special panel in the federal chancellery to help overcome professional skill shortages, Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported, citing an interview with Hubertus Heil, the party’s deputy chairman, in a preview of an article due to appear today.

The panel would be comprised of representatives of industry, unions as well as the federal labor agency and regional and community associations, the newspaper said.

The party cited shortages of highly skilled as well as intermediate skilled professionals in industry as well as scientific professions, nursing and child-care centers as reasons for their concern, SZ reported.
