President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to launch an initiative to help young people find jobs and empower them to run their own businesses.

Say YES to 1 million jobs for youth

“The initiative, in collaboration with the private sector, aims to empower one million young people over the next five years to become economically active, either as a member of the workforce or running their own businesses or finding their passion for further study,” said Minister of Communications Nomvula Mokonyane.

Minister Mokonyane, who addressed the media in Cape Town on the outcomes of  Cabinet meeting, said the launch of the pilot Youth Employment Services (YES) initiative will be held at the Riversands hub in Diepsloot.

Following the growth in the economy in 2017, Cabinet has called on all sectors of society to build on the positive momentum and work with government to translate its plans into concrete action to sustain economic growth and create jobs.

“The growth figures signal that the economy is on an upward trajectory, with National Treasury expecting the economy to expand by 1.5% this year and accelerate to 2.1% in 2020,” Minister Mokonyane said.

Cabinet has welcomed the 1.3% growth in the economy in 2017.

This is an increase from 0.3% in 2016.

“The performance of the economy under difficult conditions bodes well for the country’s future economic prospects,” she said.
