Justice and Employment Minister Jari Lindström on Wednesday assigned Maria Kaisa Aula to examine possible ways to reduce unemployment in the country.

Aula will review different actors’ views on how employers could hire unemployed people and how unemployed people could find work or set up a business more easily.

She has been asked to prepare a report in this regard by March 22, said an official press release.

Aula will examine especially the views of labour market organisations, entrepreneurs, civil society organisations, municipalities and local actors and, based on them, make a proposal on experiments that could be launched.

She will collaborate with the Ministry of Employment and the Economy, the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, and the Ministry of Education and Culture and take into account the governments’ key projects that are related to the matter.

“This report is related to the current Government’s culture of experimentation and it is very much needed, because we need new means to employ people and to find employment.  The report also reacts to the transformation of work in society. I’m very excited about this project,” said Lindström.

The review should pay attention to young people, immigrants, persons with partial work capacity, people in long-term unemployment, and aged people, whose labour market status is poor.
