EU ministers say youth unemployment problem immense

Berlin, July 3 - The immense problem of youth unemployment across Europe requires "urgent action" at both the national and continental level, ministers at a labour summit said Wednesday. In a communique from the meeting of labour ministers sent from across Europe, the group issued a call for innovative initiatives to be implemented by national governments and at the pan-European level. They stressed that the fight against unemployment, especially among young people, is their "primary objective". Recent statistics showed that overall unemployment in recession-hit Italy climbed to a new record high of 12.2% in May while the jobless rate among 15-to-24-year-olds stood at 38.5%.
