President John Mahama will launch a National Job Summit due to the growing unemployment among the youth which is a threat to global security.

The private sector, Ghana employers Association, TUC and captains of Industry will form part of the summit.

The summit is to create a platform for both industry players and the huge number of unemployed graduates to dialogue on how to create jobs.

There are currently about 600,000 unemployed graduates in Ghana and the number is expected to increase in the coming years as universities continue to produce more.

A key highlight of the summit will be the launch of the National Employment Policy, a document that gives strategic direction for job creation and also spells out the sectoral linkages for effective and efficient co-ordination of job opportunities for all Ghanaians.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Employers Association has supported the initiative by government to launch the National Jobs summit today.

The move the Association noted will serve as a platform to brainstorm on strategies that will help both government and its social partners to find solution to the growing unemployment in the country.
