  • [01] PM emphasises job-creation programmes

    Preserving jobs and containing unemployment is the top priority in government plans aimed at handling the ongoing economic crisis, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis emphasised during his tour on Thursday of a Manpower Employment Organisation (OAED) office in the Alimos district of southern coastal Athens.

    "The 3.2-billion-euro national plan drawn up and already implemented for this purpose concerns 1.35 working people and the unemployed," he stated, pointing out that "OAED is one of the main levers for its implementation and will finance, with 1.6 billion euros, actions directed to wage-earners, the unemployed, small and medium sized firms and the self-employed."

    "The first 120,000 jobs of the 200,000 to be created this year are already available. More than 10 employment and self-employment programmes are in progress," the prime minister stated.

    "Today, we create the conditions that will allow us to meet the challenges that will emerge after the crisis," he said, pointing out that "we invest in vocational training and retraining with an emphasis on professions that will definitely be in demand in the near future. We currently finance modern education programmes that will ensure a better future for the young. Such an advanced technology programme with three-dimensional simulation systems is being currently taught by OAED."

    "Investing in knowledge, new technology and new generation is the best response to the challenges of the international conjuncture. Some have chosen to invest in empty words and irresponsible promises. The government has chosen the road of responsibility. We invest in the truth of our work, a work that produces tangible results and lays the foundations for a better future for all," the prime minister stressed.
