UNIDO launches Labour Market Assessment in Khartoum State, Sudan

Khartoum, 7 August 2019 – Understanding the labor market and its business opportunities is a crucial asset for a demand-driven technical and vocational training system as it responds to the challenges faced by the labor market.

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Khartoum State Supreme Council for Human Development and Labor (SCHDL) jointly implemented a new Labor Market Assessment to examine the skills supply and labor market needs in the region. Enacted by the Elasima Centre for Training, Labour and Migration Studies, the survey further provided an overall analysis of economic, social and technical growth drivers as well as an overview of current labor market trends.

The survey was launched by SCHDL Secretary General Abdelati Mohamed Kheir on 6 August 2019 at the UNIDO office and was attended by government institutions including the Federal Ministry of Labour and Administrative Reform, the Ministry of Industry and Investment, and the Ministry of Social Security, UN agencies, NGOs and private sector representatives as well as the University of Khartoum, among others. 

The market assessment was conducted within the framework of the European Union-funded UNIDO project on Employment and Entrepreneurship Development for Sudanese Migrant Youth, Refugees, Asylum Seekers and Host Communities in Khartoum State, with the main objective of enhancing employment opportunities and stimulating entrepreneurship.
