Where are we going from here in terms of Employment?
The total population estimated by the SI National Statistics Office for 2022 is 722,392 and is expected to grow in the years to come.
CBSI’s Fourth Quarter Report in December 2021 reported that total employment stands at 55,573, down 3% from the same Quater in December 2020. This means only 55,573 or 8% of the total population of Solomon are formally working and supporting the country and its people.
What can we do with our country, dominated by subsistence livelihood/lifestyle living in a cash economy?
This is a real serious issue that needs addressing.
