Government of Armenia approved employment action plan for 2019-2023

Government of Armenia approved employment action plan for 2019-2023

ArmInfo.On December 5, the Armenian government at the meeting approved the "Work, Armenia" strategy, its terms of reference and financial assessment. According  to Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan, presenting the document that  the strategy sets priorities for reforms in the field of employment.

According to him, according to official data, in 2018, labor  resources accounted for 68% of the total population, of which 57% are  economically active. Among the economically active population, the  unemployed account for 20.4%, the proportion of young people aged  15-34 is 45%. The high proportion of unemployment and the  economically inactive population, Avinyan pointed out, is worrisome.

According to the Deputy Prime Minister, despite the fact that since  2013, the indicator of economic growth is not very low, this growth  was combined with the creation of new jobs in insufficient numbers,  there is a gap in the indicators characterizing the employment  sector, or incomplete indicators. At the same time, state employment  programs are either unattractive, or their level of awareness is low.  In addition, today the connection between education and the labor  market is broken, while a quality education can provide not only a  good employee, but also a good employer. There are also gaps in  protecting the labor rights of workers.

The new strategy defines actions aimed at solving the problems  mentioned. The program provides for actions for 2019-2023.  

To recall, on May 15, the "Work, Armenia" program officially started,   which, according to the authors of the document, one the one hand was   a reaction to statistical data indicating high rates of unemployment,   on the other - to complaints of employers who could not fill the   vacancies. "Work, Armenia" will become a reference point of the  economic revolution and, having a person at the head of the corner,   in particular, a young specialist, will ensure a smooth transition in   the "education-labor market" chain.  According to the authors of the   document, in the course of the program implementation, the   achievements of modern science will be used, in particular, it is   planned to create a mobile application that, based on the analysis of   vacancy announcements at various websites, will offer the potential   applicant the best option. As a result of the implementation of the   program, a reduction in unemployment is expected, protection of labor   rights of citizens, growth of labor productivity and economic   activity in the country will be ensured. According to statistical   data, unemployment among the economically active population is 20.4%.   According to this indicator, Armenia yields to its colleagues in the   EAEU and in the region. The share of young people aged 15-34 among   the unemployed is 45%, 43% of the workforce is accounted for by the   economically inactive population. In addition, studies show that only   6% of the unemployed are looking for work through the State Agency   for Employment, while significant allocations are made from the state   treasury to the structure. Applicants are more likely to look for   work through friends and acquaintances, which indicates a serious   institutional gap.
