President Cyril Ramaphosa has met with the leaders of business and labour to discuss the country’s unemployment crisis.
Job creation is a major problem with unemployment increasing despite various interventions from government.
Ramaphosa and his deputy David Mabuza met with labour, business and community leaders.
Some of the sectors that have been prioritised by the committee include construction, clothing, textiles, footwear, leather, and metals and machinery.
The Presidency’s Khusela Diko said: “This is also a platform to unblock any blockages that might be there, whether it be a policy or regulatory matter.”
The monthly meetings are aimed at creating employment and curtailing job losses while providing training and work experience opportunities.
The president said if they don’t move more quickly and with greater effect, the economy would continue to lose more jobs than those created.
