|Growth and jobs must be top priorities in 2013 |
- We need to use all efforts to create growth and jobs. The key economic data indicate slow growth in 2013 following a fall in GDP last year which increases the need for initiatives to boost growth and employment. This is where the Government is to keep its primary focus and take the lead, LO-President Harald Børsting states.
- Part of the solution is to invest in society. This can be done, among other things, by launching site development projects in the local municipalities and carrying out energy retrofitting of our schools and institutions. With these tools, we have the opportunity to stop the rise in unemployment and long-term unemployment, says Harald Børsting.
