Gonzi highlights government's success in job creation
Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi this morning called on supporters to be strong and get moving.
“We are going for it. Step by step, day by day. Righteousness will prevail,” he said when speaking at Marsa.
Dr Gonzi spoke at length on job creation, which, he said, was among his government’s biggest successes.
Reiterating his claim that 20,000 jobs had been created in this legislature, he said that 25,000 would be created in the next.
Referring to the Insite leaders’ debate earlier this week, he said that whether university students booed or clapped, it was a job they looked for once they finished their course.
“Who will they trust most to create the careers they are studying for,” he asked.
Whenever there was a Nationalist government, Dr Gonzi said, it always made a success out of the employment sector, he said.
One did not create work just by wishing for it, he said. Employment was created by the private sector, which had to be incentivised for the purpose.
A Nationalist government, he said, would continue to place the creation of employment at the centre of its attention.
