Government approves €55 million diversion to tackle youth employment

The cabinet of Prime Minister Robert Fico approved the diversion of €55 million from the Operational Programme Transport to projects supporting youth employment and the development of small and medium-sized companies on June 27, the TASR newswire reported. The EU-financed OP Transport programme continues to have nearly €3.8 billion available.

In addition to diverting resources for youth employment projects, certain funds will also be re-allocated within OP Transport.

An additional €70 million is expected to be diverted from OP Education to OP Employment and Social Inclusion and the government said about 13,000 jobs for young people will be created using the funds.
