Briefing/policy papers

The FNE aims to reduce unemployment among the most vulnerable categories of job seekers in three main ways:

• first, by improving the employment prospects of job seekers through specific training programmes which both meet the demands of the labour market and take into account their qualifications;
• second, by creating timely opportunities for placements in wage-earning employment;
• third, by promoting business development initiatives through providing funding sources for qualified young people who have difficulty accessing credit.

The FNE is a presidential project, funded by the national budget and directly supervised by the
Head of State. It is funded through a combination of gifts and subsidies from persons and corporate
bodies, proceeds from privatisation, and tax revenue.
