The involvement of private sectors in providing job opportunities to the locals contribute in reducing unemployment in the country. The graduate apprenticeship scheme or I-Ready which was implemented since last year, gives opportunity and exposure on human resource as well as coordination on the ability of job-seekers with the industrial needs. The private companies welcomed the good initiatives and employed local job seekers.
According to statistics from the jobscentre, up to June this year, close to 8 thousand 9 thousand job seekers are registered with the centre. From that figure, over 1 thousand 800 graduates possess Degree qualifications and above.
