Youth unemployment paints grim picture

Speaking to SABC’s Tshepiso Makwetla, CDE’s Ann Bernstein discussed the youth unemployment catastrophe in South Africa and possible solutions to reduce the unemployment rate. “We’re suggesting the country introduce one policy experiment zone, a special economic zone for economic activity. We are suggesting in the Eastern Cape at Coega where there’s already sunk investment and an underutilised port. Let’s make this an area for labour intensive manufacturing which has happened in many other countries,” she added.
