Khartoum, Self-employment is an effective antidote to counter the rising problem of youth unemployment in the three Northern States of South Kordofan, North Kordofan and Blue Nile State. Technical and vocational training institutions are in place throughout the three states, however, in most cases these institutions are in dire need of upgrading their physical infrastructure, their training equipment and their curriculum. These technical schools when adequately rehabilitated will ensure a steady supply of young and skilled workers with vocations that are suited to the local demands of the markets in each of the three states. These are just some of the findings from a Youth and Labour Market Survey, released here today. The findings were released at a Workshop that was inaugurated by the Federal Minister of Youth and Sports, H.E. Mr. Haj Magid Siwar.
