Dear Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning,

I would like to ask for the following information under Law no 04/2013 of 08/02/2013 relating to access to information.

I would like to know the rate of unemployment rate in the youth finishing secondary school and university. I, myself, am a student and about to graduate in University. Most graduates I know don't have jobs and are very desperate to find jobs. The government always tells us to create our own businesses but we don't have enough capital to start businesses. I would like to know how much the government increases its spending on local services and products to inject more money in the private sector and create jobs. I would also like to know the recent research on unemployment nationally. I seem not to find recent data on that subject. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

John Peter
