Ethiopia: Prime Minister Notes Government Attention to Job Creation

Prime Minister Hailemariam emphasized yesterday that the Government was making every effort and giving close attention to the issue of job creation.

This was a major factor in deciding the future of the country. He was speaking on Tuesday (November 13th) at the 3rd nationwide award ceremony for top researchers, students and innovators. He also noted that his government was putting major emphasis on the establishment of centers to help promote job creation in technical and vocational education and training institutes as well as universities.

The awards being made, he added, would help encourage students to study science and mathematics and instructors to give proper attention to those fields of study. Ato Dessie Dalke, Science and Technology Minister, said that a national science and technology council has been set up to monitor the country's science, technology and innovation policy and strategy.

More than 200 students, male and female, instructors, researchers and innovators, received awards on the occasion.
