     September 08 2014

    The structure of the economy needs to change to urgently provide jobs for the unemployed youth. 
    This was the message at the National Planning Commission Youth Employment Conference being held in Stellenbosch on 8th and 9th September 2014. The Conference jointly organised by MISTRA, the National Planning Commission and Yellowwoods (Business Leadership South Africa member and founder of Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator) was a multi-stakeholder conference to mobilise, align and accelerate efforts to drive inclusive youth employment in support of the implementation of the National Development Plan (NDP). 
    The theme for the conference was: "Accelerating inclusive youth employment". The conference theme is aligned to the goals of the National Development Plan.  The conference - attended by government, labour and business - aims to look at ways to break down barriers to eradicate youth unemployment. The two day conference aims to address the factors preventing young people from finding jobs and keeping employers from appointing them.
