Reducing Youth unemployment by fostering entrepreneurship and new enterprises
In spite of the European economy’s recovery, young people across Europe continue to face high levels of unemployment. This is unbearable for European Commission Vice-President Antonio Tajani who wishes to see the fight against youth unemployment put at the top of the political agenda. Therefore he has dedicated also Europe Day 2011 to young people who have faced difficulties finding work. To this end he will meet with more than 1000 young people at the University of Milan Bicocca together with representatives of all leading Italian trade unions and of entrepreneurial associations. In line with the success of Erasmus for Entrepreneurs and other European based initiatives, Europe must continue to work to fulfil the employment needs of young people.
