Private Sector Development in the Palestinian Territory
Unemployment is on the rise in the Palestinian Territory with figures above 40% in the Gaza Strip. Many young people even with a degree cannot find a job. Yet various labor market studies show that employers complain that they cannot find employees with adequate competences to work in their companies and that youngsters with technical skills are in high demand.
Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) should therefore be the best career choice for youngsters to acquire relevant skills to find a job or to start their own business and provide the labor market with the skilled youth it needs.
