Peruvian garment sector to create jobs over next 12 months
Jul '13
The garment and textile sector is among the industries that are likely to create new jobs in Peru, over the next 12 months, according to the first labour demand-supply survey conducted by the Ministry of Labour and Employment Promotion (PETM).
Around 53 percent of the 1,299 companies surveyed by the Ministry said they would need more employees during the next 12 months.
A total of 693 industrial firms would required about 46,454 workers over the next 12-month period, the office of the Deputy Minister for Employment and Vocational Training, PETM, said.
The survey on industrial employment was conducted by the Ministry in collaboration with the National Training and Industry (SENATI) and the National Society of Industries (SNI).
While providing jobs is among the functions of PETM, it is also bound to provide information on the types of jobs needed, according to business demand. Hence, the findings of the survey would help educational institutions to design their curricula according to demand, said the Minister of Labour and Employment Promotion, Laos Nancy Caceres.
The Minister said that currently 48 percent of Peruvians are performing jobs that are not related to their studies.
The survey was the first effort to have real information about the current labour market demand, taking into account that there is an occupational mismatch between education and labor market demand. The findings of the survey would help in matching supply to demand and raise the levels of job placement, a statement from the Ministry said.
The survey found that there will be vacancies for 2,075 people in the garment sector, 1,904 workers in the textile sector, and another 3,925 people would be needed for harvesting of cotton and peanuts, during the next one year.
