Turkish govt readies strategy paper on national employment

Turkish State Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan said Tuesday the Turkish government was working on a national employment strategy document.

Speaking at a conference co-hosted by the Turkish Industrialists's and Businessmen's Association (TUSIAD) and Koc University, Babacan said that the national employment strategy document would be shaped at the meeting of the Economic Coordination Council (EKK) in June.

We would like to finalize this document by July, Babacan said.

The fact that employment figures in Turkey are improving every single month is a crucial development, Babacan said.

Our investment incentive program will continue. We will separately look at the services sector and employment. We are presently working on the national employment strategy document. A team of 200 people, including businessmen and academicians are working together on the document. This is the first time in Turkey when employment is being worked on by looking at the long term, Babacan also said.

Unemployment rate purified from seasonal impacts is 12.7 percent in Turkey, Babacan said last Sunday.
