(TAP) - At a meeting with unemployed university graduates held on Sunday at the Denden Sectoral Training Centre in the Manouba governorate, Prime Minister Youssef Chahed unveiled the main thrusts of the government\\'s strategy in the employment sector for 2018.

On this occasion, the PM gave clarifications about all the issues related to the new employment policies in particular with regard to the project of the new generation of promoters and that of the “independent personal initiative.”

In this regard, he pointed out that the project of independent personal initiative will regard a new generation of young promoters, specifying that the State will guarantee for three years a framework contract in all regions of the country to ensure the sustainability of their projects.

Chahed said that, as part of this project, the young promoter can submit a request for funding to the Tunisian Solidarity Bank (BTS) which could grant a ceiling of 150 thousand dinars in addition to the transactions that will be made in the framework contract set up by the State and whose value is estimated at 600 thousand dinars.

According to a Prime Ministry press release on Monday, the premier underlined that the State is endeavouring to secure several job opportunities in the green economy sector, indicating that a large number of young promoters have already benefited from the interventions of this framework contract mainly in the equipment field.

Chahed added that steps have been taken to simplify the procedures for creating a project, pointing out that the State will sign a contract with any enterprise run by an unemployed person in all regions of the country.

Moreover, the PM underlined that the personal initiative is a good solution, adding that the government lends a great interest to this project.

According to him, micro-credits have helped create small businesses that today have their weight in the economic fabric.

Stressing the importance of micro-credits in the creation of projects and the achievement of the economic and social integration of young promoters, Chahed recalled that the State had dedicated to this end 100 million dinars from the 2018 State budget.
