French President Francois Hollande has declared
a state of economic emergency to redefine
France’s economic and social model.
Under the ambit emergency, government has
proposed series of economic measures to boost
long-stagnant economic growth and reduce
chronic unemployment.
Proposed economic measures are
Training half a million jobless workers, greater
use of apprenticeships and aiding companies
for hiring young workers.
Updating country’s labour-friendly business
model in an increasingly online and border-free
Loosening rigid working time rules including
35-hour workweek and a bonus of 2,000 euros
to small businesses that hire young people.
Integrate youth from France’s troubled
suburbs especially minorities who face job
discrimination into the global economy.
These measures will be included in draft
economic reform laws which French government
is going to present in parliament.
