PosOnderwerp: Western Cape creates jobs while country loses them   Fri May 07, 2010 9:14 pm






May 7, 2010 9:56 AM | By Staff Reporter



Western Cape is creating jobs despite a 1% rise in unemployment nationally. Figures from Statistics SA show that unemployment in the DA-run province has dropped by 1.2% between the last quarter of 2009 and the first quarter this year.

Across the other eight provinces the average unemployment rate is 26%.
DA MP, Ian Ollis MP, says: "The Western Cape’s performance need to be viewed particularly in the context of the performance of other provinces. The number of unemployed people in the Eastern Cape has risen by 60 000 over the first quarter of 2010 and the unemployment rate jumped 2.8%. In Gauteng, 81 000 more people are unemployed, and the unemployment rate is up 1.4%. Other provinces like Mpumalanga (34 000 more unemployed; up 2.7%) and the Free State (19 000 more unemployed, up 1.9%) faired similarly poorly."
He says these figures reflect the strong economic stability brought to bear in the Western Cape’s financial hub, the City of Cape Town, over the past four years, as well as the early but steady progress being made in the Western Cape administration.
"This progress, both in provincial and local DA administrations, has resulted in better delivery of infrastructure and services, it has created more space for small and medium sized enterprises to take root, it has eased administrative burdens, and it is actively improving investor confidence. This is translating into tangible employment opportunities - opportunities that will help us win the fight against poverty," says Ollis.
The unemployment rate in the Western Cape fell from 21.5% to 20.3% in the first quarter of 2010 - by far the best performance of any province.
In agriculture, 45, 000 new jobs were created in the Western Cape during the first quarter of 2010, even while agriculture struggled in neighbouring provinces during the same time period—the Eastern Cape lost 5, 000 agricultural jobs in the first quarter, while the Northern Cape lost 6, 000 jobs.
In trade, 11, 000 new jobs were created in the Western Cape during the first quarter of 2010, while, nationally, 48, 000 jobs were lost in the sector. Of these, 42, 000 were lost in Gauteng.
In the transport sector, 14, 000 new jobs were created in the Western Cape during the first quarter of 2010. The Western Cape contributed half of all new jobs created in this sector nationally, during the first quarter.
Although the finance sector,Gauteng lost 52, 000 jobs were lost during the first quarter; KwaZulu-Natal, 31, 000, while the Western Cape lost 5, 000 jobs.
"What all those provinces that have experienced job losses have in common is ANC administrations that put the interests of the politically connected few above the interests of ordinary South Africans. Instead of attending to the economy and creating the space for job creation, ANC politicians engage in turf battles, reserve ‘jobs for pals’ and enrich themselves through irregular tenders," says Ollis.
