Africa's Unemployment Figures Remain High

Economic growth which fails to create decent and sufficient jobs is unsustainable, says UNCTAD

The United Nations (UN) has warned that some of the world’s poorest nations such as Angola and Ethiopia have failed to cash in on the booming economic growth to create the jobs needed to push their increasing populations out of poverty.
 
UN Conference on Trade and Development’s (UNCTAD) head, Mukhisa Kituyi, states that economic growth which fails to create decent and sufficient jobs is unsustainable.
 
UNCTAD has declared 49 countries which have experienced strong economic growth over the past decade, but states that there is still a limited amount of decent jobs to show for it.
