CEPD reveals plans to cut jobless rate

In a bid to drive down the unemployment rate to below 4 percent, the government will target five groups of people for job promotion, the Council for Economic Planning and Development said yesterday.

行政院經濟建設委員會昨日表示,為了讓失業率降低至百分之四以下,政府將鎖定五大族群,增加就業。 

The five groups are those who have lost their jobs due to changes in industrial structure, youths, aborigines, middle-aged and the elderly, and women who have to support families, officials from the nation's highest economic planning agency said.

國家最高經濟建設機構的官員表示,五大族群包括結構失業者、青少年、原住民、中老年人以及必須扶養家庭的婦女。

Reporting on the results of job-promotion measures in 2005 and plans for 2006 at an Executive Yuan meeting, the officials said the average jobless rate was 4.13 percent in 2005, down 0.31 percent from the previous year.

行政院的會議中,針對2005年增加就業機會的措施與2006年的計劃提出報告,官員表示,2005年平均失業率是百分之四點一三,比前一年下降了百分之零點三一。

In December 2005, the jobless rate was 3.86 percent, a five-year single-month low. If no job-boosting measures had been taken in 2005, it is estimated that the jobless rate would have been around 4.3 percent. In other words, related job-promotion measures effectively cut the jobless rate for the whole year by 0.17 percent, they said.

2005年十二月的失業率為百分之三點八六,是五年來的單月新低紀錄,如果2005年沒有增加就業措施,估計失業率可能會在百分之四點三左右。他們表示,換言之,相關的增進就業措施有效地降低全年百分之零點一七的失業率。

For people jobless due to industrial structure changes, the officials said the government will continue to promote investment and major construction projects. In addition, the Council of Labor Affairs will also promote a project to enhance the professional skills of workers.

針對結構失業者,官員表示政府會繼續推動投資與主要建設計劃。此外,勞委會也將促進一項提昇工人專業技巧的計劃。

On promoting the employment of aborigines, the officials said they expect to create 12,000 jobs, driving down the jobless rate among aborigines to below 4.7 percent.

在促進原住民就業方面,官員表示他們預計將創造一萬兩千個工作機會,將原住民失業率降低至百分之四點七以下。

The CLA and the Ministry of Economic Affairs will also be in charge of providing multiple-channel job opportunities as well as low-rate loans for starting small businesses for middle-aged and elderly people, as well as for women who are the family breadwinner.

勞委會與經濟部也將負責提供多重就業機會管道與小型企業低率貸款給中老年人以及需負擔家計的女性。
