Government says it hopes that its business and labour partners attending the Jobs Summit in Johannesburg will be able to make tangible commitments to create jobs.

Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant was speaking on the side-lines of the summit. She says business should address how they will invest in jobs, while labour should discuss how they will behave to make job creation easier.

Oliphant says government will intervene where possible to improve job creation policies.

“We have identified during the discussion certain areas where we need interventions by each and every constituency of which those interventions will be announced by the president this afternoon.”

Meanwhile Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) says the Jobs Summit should not give a false impression that there would be a sudden large scale number of jobs created after agreements have been signed.
