People's demands for employment to be considered a right were actively raised during the Tunisian revolution. Novel approaches, a defined road map and pooled resources all form part of the impetus towards gearing the new economy, curbing unemployment and boosting new jobs. Yet, none of these farsighted changes can materialize without addressing the real, underlying problems the region faces in setting up new youth employment strategies.


September 17th will feature a session geared towards these very challenges. During this session, entitled 'The Employment Challenge: How to Adapt National Strategies to better improve youth employability and skills', participants will put forth ideas on how to further strengthen international as well as regional cooperation to achieve concrete short-term results in the field of youth employability, and how to streamline employment and job creation across complex national contexts of industry, fiscal and macro-economic policies.


One of the pivotal roles of the conference will be to provide insights and data. For example, did you know that roughly 30% of the total population of the Arab Mediterranean countries is between the ages of 15 to 30? And were you aware that recent figures indicate the alarming fact that two-thirds of young people are currently excluded from decent work? They are either in informal, sub-standard employment, unemployed or neither in employment nor in education or training. Among young Arab women, this exclusion from the labour market affects up to 80% of the total population.

Analysts have collectively pointed out the need to review the development model and economic policies implemented during the last 25 years in the Arab Mediterranean countries, including, among others, the substantive energy subsidies in the region, the rigid labour regulations and the high wage charges.

Encouragingly, the session will help to channel pragmatic and workable solutions for the region's pressing challenges. An array of recommendations to be put forward features suggestions as to how to eradicate youth illiteracy and the practical components involved in making this a reality. Or perhaps pinpointing business sectors which have a potential for high job creation such as tourism, construction, the agro-food business or ICT.
