Education and Youth Employment

My task today is to introduce key issues for discussion. The meeting is fortunate in having before it not only the series of papers which set out the problems of youth unemployment in the particular countries of the Commonwealth and the manner in which educational and other programs have been used to address them, but also Dr. Kenneth King's illuminating working paper together with the Secretariat's summary of issues for discussion. Given this background material, I propose to concentrate on youth employment (as distinct from youth unemployment) and to consider the contribution that education and training arrangements can make to the adult world.
