THE National Federation Party says it will re-establish the Public Works Department.
And this has already been incorporated in the party's main manifesto that will be released on July 21.
Party leader Professor Biman Prasad said the party was concerned about school leavers and those with vocational skills who could not find a suitable job.
"The NFP, in government, will re-establish PWD so that our young and skilled are employed in national infrastructure projects and in those funded by foreign loans and grants," Mr Prasad said.
He said NFP would review the apprenticeship schemes and training programs to ensure the right skills were acquired by school leavers, which would match the type of employment that would be available in the case of national infrastructure projects.
Mr Prasad claimed the current recovery in economic growth was mainly consumption driven and was unlikely to be sustainable in the future.
"Therefore, the NFP in government will provide an economic reform policy agenda that would spur real sector growth and ensure sustainable and inclusive economic growth which would generate employment.
"NFP is seriously concerned about high levels of unemployment. Statistics from the National Employment Centre is depressing news for our young people who are coming out of schools and tertiary institutions."
