The level of youth unemployment has reached 23% in the European Union, while in some member states the number of people between the age of 16 and 25 is above 50%. The resolution adopted on Thursday, 17th of July by the European Parliament finds that youth unemployment of this magnitude has never been seen in the EU and that there is a need to address this issue on an EU and member state level.

The European Commission (CE) should prepare an Erasmus Professional Internships Program addressing unemployed young people under 25 in the EU. The European SME’s certainly would be the partners of such an initiative stated MEP Iuliu Winkler (RMDSZ, EPP) last Friday, addressing European Commissioner for Financial Programming and the Budget, Jan Lewandowski, in a debate on the re-launch of competitiveness and the contribution the EU budget can make to the process. Iuliu Winkler is member of the Political Bureau of the EPP Group in the European Parliament and attended a meeting in Dubrovnik dedicated to Croatia’s EU accession.
