Although the youth unemployment rate is in decline, one-fifth of young people is looking for job for over a year.
At today held round table “Youth participation in the economy of Serbia” the Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation presented results of the research “YOUTH INDEX PARTICIPATION” realized within the project “YOUTH BANK HUB OF THE WESTERN BALKAN AND TURKY” which is realized in Serbia by financial support of European Commission.
The main results of the research are the facts that every 4th entrepreneur and every 17th company owner are less than 30 years old, the fact that the unemployment rate is in decline for 8% during last four years but also the worrying fact that one quarter of the citizens of this age are economically excluded (they are unemployed, they are not at any school program).
