MAJURO, Marshall Islands — Fewer than 1,000 new jobs have been created in the Marshall Islands over the past 13 years, a fact that has led to high unemployment generally and a huge youth unemployment picture.

The Marshall Islands government and the International Labor Organization took steps to improve the job picture for young people in the country on Nov. 16 with the signing of the first National Action Plan on Youth Employment, 2017 - 19. The move follows engagement with the ILO since last year on the youth job situation.
