Guatemalan private sector launches bid to boost jobs
The Guatemalan Development Foundation, Fundesa, the private sector's economic development think tank, together with Cacif, The Association of Guatemalan Chambers, launched the large scale thought and action initiative "Guatemalans, let's improve Guatemala".
The initiative seeks to lay-down a roadmap which incorporates proposals and ideas from different sectors who want to contribute to the creation of more jobs.
Guatemala is only generating roughly 20,000 new jobs per year which falls far short of the 140,000 young people who enter the labor market.
