Mbanza Kongo- The Minister of Public Administration, Labour and Social Security, Teresa Rodrigues Dias, said this Tuesday in the municipality of Tomboco, Zaire province, that it is essential that local companies are open to receive trainees who conclude their professional and academic training.

Rodrigues Dias explained that paid professional internships, provided for under the Action Plan for the Promotion of Employability (PAPE), are designed to make the link between the end of the training or schooling pathway and the labour market.

The Cabinet minister, who has been working since Monday in the province of Zaire, where she officially launched the PAPE in this region, also hoped for an active participation of the municipal administrations and other entities for the success of this programme.

She considered the involvement of local youths in the plan as fundamental, so that they should sign up for the actions in which they fit in terms of the basic requirements demanded, so that they contribute to the generation of jobs, income and the well-being of the population of the province.

In the scope of paid professional internships, the sector signed three protocols with two institutions, being two high schools and higher education schools and a water and sanitation public company, which welcomed three young people, in a total of seven enrolled.
