Zimbabwe: Thursday, 24 January 2013 - Issue 505

press release

At the top of President Tsvangirai's 2013 agenda are the youth and creation of a modern, democratic and developmental State that respects the wishes of the people and does not cover up its own failures but ensures that it facilitates for people to achieve their dreams.

"We recently launched JUICE, the Jobs, Upliftment, Investment, Capital and Environment. JUICE is a comprehensive jobs plan because we believe that the critical social question we face is unemployment. People are being educated and yet there is no industry to absorb them. This is very frustrating for the young population. They are disillusioned and we need to come up with a response mechanism which focuses on jobs, revival of industries, infrastructure rehabilitation, agriculture, foreign direct investment, ensuring that the skills level we have in the country are enhanced and that will create an absorption capacity for the unemployed in this country." he said.
