The Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations (MELR) in collaboration with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) on Tuesday, December 21, 2022, met with stakeholders to validate the Ghana Labour Market Information System and Skills Anticipation Action Plan.

There has been the need for the Action Plan after research conducted last year uncovered that Ghana lacks a robust national system for skill anticipation.

The Ghana Labour Market Information System is basically going to look at how to collect data, how to process the data, share the data, so that job seekers can look for jobs, employers can also use the data to forecast the kind of skills that they want to give jobs to the unemployed.

In a country of over 30 million population where unemployment is a major challenge, the implementation of the Action Plan of the Labour Market Information System scheduled for next year is expected to be a game-changer.

The Action Plan has been put into a document on the recommendation that there is the need to enhance the Labour regulation act, improve Labour market information data, build institutional capacity, and integrate skill-match and anticipation modules, among others.
