New Brussels minister-president to create 4,000 jobs
Newly appointed Brussels minister-president Rudi Vervoort plans 30 “concrete and immediate measures” to create 4,000 jobs in the Brussels Region, Le Soir and De Standaard report today. His priority is to put young people in the capital to work, when one in three is currently unemployed. The Brussels executive has set aside €10 million to finance these measures, writes Le Soir. Vervoort calls for the creation of 4,350 internships and vocational training posts this year, at a cost of €3.43 million. He also wants to strengthen language learning. A total of €900,000 has been cleared to create an online learning platform and reinforce the ‘language cheques’ initiative.
