February 7, 2016 5:48 pm
The government is focusing on reducing poverty level by creating more jobs.
Attorney General Aiayaz Sayed-Khaiyum says in order to achieve this the government has to ensure that there is stability in labour relations.
“We have an environment where industries feel comfortable, employees feel comfortable and where workers feel comfortable and also they don’t use this for political reasons at the end of the day like I said we have to look after the people who not well looked after.”
Sayed-Khaiyum says the government is doing all it can to sustain jobs and create jobs and at the same time reduce poverty level in the country.
In the recent household income expenditure survey reveals that poverty level has decreased by 3.8 percent from 2013 to 2014.
