Detailed description of project Back

Unemployment is a serious problem in Morocco as in many other countries in the region. This has become even more apparent over the last decade with an increase in unemployment under the qualified workforce. The Government of Morocco (GoM) responds with a twofold strategy: on one hand employment creation through the creation of new enterprises and support to existing SME’s and on the other hand the reform of the education and training system in order to make the supply of qualified workforce meet the demand. In this context the GoM has created the National Agency for the Promotion of Employment and Expertise (ANAPEC). The EC is financing a 3.3 Mil Euro Support to Employment Creation Project. The objectives of this assistance are:

  • To Support the ANAPEC in the introduction of youngsters in the labour market and to assist in defining its human resources needs;
  • To Reinforce the ANAPEC in delivering of technical assistance to the creation and support of enterprises and in the development of self – employment.
