Rabat – To solve the problem of unemployment, we should not count only on growth, said minister of employment and social affairs Abdeslam Seddiki.
According to estimates, 1 % of growth rate generates an average of 30,000 jobs, and we have a labor market that is witnessing an annual arrival of 180,000 job applications, said Seddiki in an interview published Monday by the newspaper “L’Economiste”.
To meet these arrivals, we need a growth rate of 6 %, without including the existing stock of unemployed people, he said, stressing the importance of setting the balance between innovative investment and those meant for traditional sectors, and investment in infrastructure that creates indirect employment.
The minister, who noted that the pressure on the labor market is still high, said that his department can act immediately on existing employment active policies, namely the Taehil, the Idmaj” and Moukawalati programs.
