Ghana needs 300,000 jobs annually – World Bank
Ghana needs to create 300,000 new jobs annually in order to meet its employment needs by the year 2020.
This is according to the World Bank’s Senior Country Operations Officer, Dr Beatrix Allah-Mensah who was speaking at the launch of the National Labour Intensive Public Works (LIPW) policy in Accra.
The aim of the policy is to have public works such as the construction of roads and new schools involving community members as labourers instead of using heavy machinery to do all the work.
“[LIPW] is a systematic and coordinated approach with the essentials to ensuring that the economically active poor in Ghana gain access to needed employment and training,” Allah-Mensah said.
