Cross-border partnerships to help youth inclusion on labour market in Romania, EU

Over 60 cross-border partnerships will be set up by end-September, with social actors of 10 European countries, to support the youth inclusion on the labour market of Romania and of the European Union, Angelica Sabiescu, the ‘Pro Juvenes – Cross-border partnership for an inclusive labour market for the youth’ project manager announced on Tuesday.
‘The general goal of the project is the strengthening of the capacity of the labour market’s actors (unions and employers’ organisations, public bodies and NGOs) to actively get involved in promoting youth’s employment and social inclusion, by implementing policies focusing on their employment. It is about the Volunteering Law, the Internship Law, the Apprenticeship Law, etc. Bottom line, more than 60 cross-border partnerships will be concluded by the end of September, with social parties from 10 European countries, to support the youth’s inclusion on the labour market of Romania and of the European Union. Likewise, two experience swaps will be operated in this field in Italy and Spain, two of the countries where the Romanian migrants are numerous. According to most recent data, approximately 1,200,000 Romanian migrants are in Italy, 930,000 in Spain, and 370,000 in the United Kingdom,’ Angelica Sabiescu told a specialist round table.
According to her, many young Romanians take off to work in other countries without having a minimum necessary training, not knowing what they are to be confronted with on the spot.
‘Our role is to disseminate information at the social actors’ level, so the young would benefit from the best solutions for a successful integration on the labour market, in Romania and in the EU countries. The young are, undoubtedly, one of the most important resources of the social and economic development of a country. Romania’s emigrant population splits approximately equally in men and women and it’s kind of young, over 65pct having between 18 and 39 years old,’ the project manager added.
The ‘Pro Juvenes – Cross-border partnership for an inclusive labour market for the youth’ project is running for 12 months and it’s worth almost 11 million lei, of which 75pct from the European Social Fund.
‘The round table in human resources and social inclusion, mobility and migration of the youth, the labour inclusive market for the youth’ was organized by the Labour, Family, Social Protection and Elderly Persons Ministry, through the Department for Social Dialogue, together with the Novapolis Association – the Centre of Analyses and Initiatives for Development
