Namibia's economy does have the ability to create jobs. However, the rate at which these opportunities are created remains a concern.
As highlighted in this week's State of the Nation address, the unemployment rate, especially among the youth is still high, prompting government to redirect its approaches on employment creation.
The unemployment rate among the youth is estimated at 39,2% and most of these unemployed youths are less than 30 years old.
