Daar was onlangs ‘n regeringsprogram of inisiatief geloods vir werkloosheid onder die jeug, maar dit sluit BLANKES hierby uit. ‘n Rassistiese plan net soos al die ander wetgewings wat deur Parlement hardloop en wat nie gou genoeg ge-implementeer word nie. Die swart jeugdiges in Suid-Afrika verkry die boustene om voort te gaan om swart bemagtigers te wees met rassisme en diskriminasie teenoor blankes in Suid-Afrika. Interessant dat die inisiatiewe die BRICS lande se werkloses hierby insluit, maar blankes in Suid-Afrika totaal en al uitsluit (weens B-BBEE).
The Government launched a Youth Employment Portal in March to tackle the massive Youth Unemployment epidemic in South Africa. What the government didn’t tell you is that you can’t register if you are white… https://youtu.be/ykaeO_xsTao

Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa has called for the establishment of an innovative educational program to help young designers from BRICS countries.
Addressing a delegation of BRICS Ministers of Culture on Wednesday, he said the programme must assist young designers to understand the fashion industry, promote the creation of market access and the consumption of fashion amongst BRICS countries.
The Minister said the programme must also support access for BRICS fashion designers to participate in each other’s premier fashion shows and to jointly explore manufacturing, textile and retail opportunities within BRICS countries.
Mthethwa said the creative economy represented by film, fashion, animation, crafts and music are arguably the greatest assets culture has.
“It is in this context colleagues that we need to move speedily, to instruct the Working Group to begin work on the available opportunities within BRICS, and to present to us the plan and budget to realise this during our next meeting in Brazil in 2019,” he said.
We have risen to the challenge of unemployment by working together as social partners representing all sectors of society and developing solutions in which we share ownership and pride,” said the President.

Support for small business
With small businesses noted as the key to unlocking jobs at the summit, President Ramaphosa said government is at work to create fertile ground for small business to prosper.
“Small business are meant to be the real engines of job creation and the real engines that are supposed to fuel economic growth. We are at this summit have decided that we are going to support small businesses to move ahead,” he said.
Buy local circle
Localisation was highlighted as the “real win” emerging from the summit. The framework agreement, called for business and the country at large to enter the “Buy local circle” where they procure and buy local products.
Proposals emerging from the summit
Providing feedback on the break-away sessions held ahead of the closing, community convener Nhlanhla Ndlovu proposed the implementation of a 24-hour service delivery model and the empowerment of informal traders.
Panels also proposed the establishment of more early childhood development centres in townships as they have potential to provide skills and employment in the townships.
President Ramaphosa proposed that the Jobs Summit be held bi-annually to allow constant monitoring of implementation.
In closing, President Ramaphosa said the summit gave an indication to potential investors on the country’s plan to deal with unemployment and a sluggish economy.
President Ramaphosa said the Investment Conference is seen as the next measure to creating jobs.
With just under three weeks to go until the Investment Conference which takes place on 26 October 2018, the President called on local and international investors to come forward and lend a hand.
“We have committed to raising R1.3 trillion in five years and we want to get a clear demonstration that there is a commitment by the investment community that they are ready to invest,” said the President.
Presidential Jobs Committee to ensure implementation
Key to ensuring that jobs are created, President Ramaphosa said the Presidential Jobs Committee, as a monitoring mechanism, will play a key role in ensuring that targets are met.
Constituencies will now implement the agreed actions in their respective sectors and report back to the President on an on-going basis.
All actions will be tracked through a monitoring framework and quarterly reports on progress will be provided to the President to ensure that they have real impact. – SAnews.gov.za
The South African Government was mandated in 2004 to halve poverty and
unemployment by 2014. These objectives are feasible – indeed we would hope to surpass
them – because of steady improvement in the economy’s performance and job-creating
In order to promote private-sector investment, sector strategies are being prepared, and
some are in the implementation stage. A broader National Industrial Policy Framework will be submitted to Cabinet during this year. Part of the purpose of AsgiSA is to focus the
energy of government and its partners.
In this context, two sectors have been identified for special priority attention: business process outsourcing (BPO) and tourism. A third sector, biofuels, is being finalised. What these industries have in common is that they are labour-intensive, rapidly growing sectors worldwide, suited to South African circumstances, and open to opportunities for Broad-Based Black Economic mpowerment (BBBEE) and small business development.
BPO refers to the trend of business worldwide, especially in countries where labour is costly, to locate back-office activities such as accounts or claims processing or front office activities like call centres in cheaper centres. South Africa has attracted about 5 000 of such jobs from the rest of the world so far.
The sector has the potential for 100 000 additional direct and indirect jobs by 2009. Government and business have a oint project, supported by the Business Trust, led by the Minister of Trade and Industry and the Chair of Standard Bank to remove obstacles and refine incentives to achieve this goal.
