Job creation remains Hollande's top priority in 2014

Paris, Jan 1 : French President Francois Hollande said decreasing the country's alarming number of job seekers will remain his sole priority in 2014.


"I have only one priority, one objective, one commitment, it is the job creation," he said addressing the 65 million population Tuesday in his second New Year's address, Xinhua reported.

Hollande admitted that the unemployment stood at high level with 3.293 millions registered job seekers at the end of November, up 0.5 percent from the previous month.

The president stressed the need of "the mobilization of all forces to gain the battle (against the unemployment)".

He proposed a fresh device to inject new breathe in the sluggish domestic job market "based on simple principle, less labor costs, fewer constraints on their activities and, in return, more recruitments and more social dialogue".

Hollande promised more spending cut in 2014 to lower the budget gap.

"We need to save money wherever they are possible... in order to decrease taxes... which became too heavy. I will take myself, the responsibility and the monitoring of this savings program throughout the mandate," he pledged.
