Matiase, Mr NS to ask the Minister of Labour
Whether the proposed 1 Million jobs to be created over the next three years will include jobs in the Expanded Public Works Programme?
The call by the President to create 1 million jobs in three years will involve multi-faceted government strategies covering a range of initiatives such as, sector-specific interventions in sectors like agriculture, forestry, clothing, tourism and aquaculture as key growth sectors and programmes such as the recent Youth Employment Services.
The full time equivalent jobs to be created under the Expanded Public Works Programme and other initiatives across other Departments may very well be part of the equation.
