Minister for Employment, Trade, Industry and Diaspora Affairs, Dr. Collin McIntyre, has urged interested Dominicans to register for the National Employment Programme, which is set to be launched on Monday, December 2, 2013.
Over 400 Dominicans will be engaged by government in direct employment initiatives by the programme.
At a press briefing on Tuesday McIntyre stated that the National Employment Programme demonstrates government’s seriousness towards creating employment for the people of Dominica.
He dismissed large figure promises of employment by “novice political leaders” as “unrealistic, political gimmicks.”
McIntyre said the programme empowers people through on the job training, thus giving them an opportunity to create a better life for themselves and their families.
Interested people are asked to register at the Small Business and Employment Unit, located on the first floor of the Financial Centre in Roseau by Friday, November 15, 2013.
