(TAP)- Minister of Vocational Training and Employment, Saida Ounissi, stressed on Tuesday that the national employment strategy will be officially announced on June 30, after the negotiations have been concluded in recent days and it has been adopted by the Prime Ministry.

In a statement to TAP on the occasion of the first African Modern Technology Leadership Summit held in Tunisia under the theme "Startup Gate", the Minister pointed out that the development of this new employment strategy was made in the framework of a partnership between the government and organisations and after numerous consultations at the national and regional level.

The employment strategy to be implemented in 2020-2030 aims to adapt the training of vocational training and higher education students to new labour market needs in order to improve the rate of integration into the labour market, given that the unemployment rate currently stands at 15.3%.

A steering committee made up of representatives of the Ministry, the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) and the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (UTICA) as well as representatives of the International Labour Office attended the drafting of this national employment strategy.
