Held under the theme – “United we can create jobs” – the Jobs Summit on 4 and 5 October 2018 was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa in his 2018 State of the Nation Address.  The president highlighted that jobs, especially for the youth, will be at the centre of the 2018 national agenda.  The summit will bring together government, business, labour, and community organisations to advance job creation, thereby providing a platform for open discussion on the challenges faced by each social partner in the creation of jobs.  The conference will also have commissions to discuss various themes focusing on enabling interventions/interventions supportive of employment creation, sectoral interventions creating employment, and interventions focused on enhancing efficiencies.
