Unemployment, young people and the crisis: OECD press conference, Brussels, Wednesday 15 December
9 December 2010
Young people have suffered a disproportionate share of job losses during the global economic crisis. Many governments
have boosted spending on programmes to help them. But with the economic recovery still fragile and fiscal pressures
mounting, there are concerns that many will be left behind and could face years of unemployment.
Off to a good start? Jobs for Youth presents new OECD data and analysis on these issues. The report will be released at
a press conference in Brussels on Wednesday 15 December at 11.00 a.m..
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will present the findings, together with Joëlle Milquet, Deputy-Prime Minister and
Minister of Employment, Belgium, and Luca Scarpiello, board member of the European Youth Forum.
The press conference will take place at the Auditorium Storck (salle 1190), Service public fédéral Emploi, Travail et
Concertation sociale, rue Ernest Blerot 1.
Journalists are also invited to a lunch buffet after the press conference.
