China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

Ethiopia has cre­ated over 1.7 mil­lion job op­por­tu­ni­ties through the govern­ment’s job cre­ation ini­tia­tive dur­ing the just com­pleted 2016 / 2017 Ethiopian fis­cal year, ac­cord­ing to the Ethiopian Ur­ban Job Cre­ation and Food Se­cu­rity Coun­cil. The coun­cil said that the East African coun­try, which had an ini­tial plan to ben­e­fit 2.1 mil­lion cit­i­zens through the ini­tia­tive, was able to cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for 1.7 mil­lion peo­ple who re­side in fed­eral cities across the coun­try. The coun­cil had been im­ple­ment­ing a plat­form to reg­is­ter job-seek­ers across the coun­try, in which 1.7 mil­lion peo­ple were reg­is­tered and em­ployed through var­i­ous sec­tors dur­ing the re­ported Ethiopian fis­cal year. Ethiopia’s man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor, fol­lowed by the con­struc­tion in­dus­try, was said to be at the fore­front in cre­at­ing job op­por­tu­ni­ties for the bur­geon­ing work­ing class Ethiopi­ans dur­ing the stated pe­riod.
