The Jobs Summit is set to take place on 4 and 5 October 2018 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, Johannesburg.
Some trade unions have been saying that they don’t expect much to come out of this summit in terms of job creation.
However, Lungi Mtshali, spokesperson for the Minister in the Presidency says it is unfortunate that trade unions have a negative outlook about the summit.
He says the Presidency expects all parties involved to come to the table and talk about practical solutions that would allow a growth in the economy that will allow the creation of jobs that the country needs.
The job summit was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa during his State of the Nation Address.
South Africa is still struggling with the unemployment rate which increased to 27,2 % in the second quarter of the year.
