SuperPuna Platform: Connecting Young Job Seekers in Kosovo

At the beginning of the year the government of Kosovo introduced a new platform named "SuperPuna" with the primary objective of connecting young job seekers between the ages of 18 and 25 with various employment opportunities available in both the private and public sectors. The initiative is part of the government's commitment to empower the next generation with valuable work experience and skills development, ultimately contributing to the growth of a robust economy. This report aims to provide an overview of the "SuperPuna" platform, its significance, and the government's efforts in promoting youth employment.

The launch of "SuperPuna" marks a significant step towards addressing the issue of youth unemployment in Kosovo. The platform serves as a centralized hub where young job seekers can explore a wide range of employment options offered by both private businesses and public organizations. By facilitating this connection, the government aims to empower the youth with practical job opportunities that can help them develop their skills and contribute meaningfully to the country's economic growth.

Prime Minister Albin Kurti has been a vocal advocate for providing the youth with better prospects for career advancement and economic stability. Recognizing the potential of the young workforce, the Prime Minister envisions a future where the youth can be equipped with essential skills and experiences to bolster the nation's economic strength. By focusing on youth employment, the government aims to harness the potential of the next generation of workers and leaders, ensuring Kosovo's prosperous and sustainable future.

The launch of "SuperPuna" has received support from international partners as well. Mr. Jean-Christophe Favre, the Head of Economy and Employment and Regional Advisor for Western-Balkan countries at the Swiss Embassy in Kosovo, expressed his commitment to advancing Kosovo's progress in areas significant to them. This collaboration signifies the shared determination of international entities to support Kosovo's efforts in boosting youth employment and overall economic development.

One of the most enticing aspects of "SuperPuna" is the government's financial backing for the youth hired through the platform. For every young person employed through "SuperPuna," the government pledges to provide a subsidy of 264 euros per month for the initial six months of employment. This financial incentive aims to encourage employers to hire young job seekers and provide them with valuable on-the-job training and experience.

The government has set an ambitious target of creating 10,000 new jobs within the first year of "SuperPuna's" launch. This objective highlights the government's commitment to youth employment and underscores its dedication to providing opportunities for the young workforce. By creating a substantial number of job openings within a short time frame, the government aims to make a significant impact on reducing youth unemployment rates and fostering economic growth.

As the platform gains traction and fulfills its objective of creating 10,000 new jobs, it is anticipated that Kosovo's economy will witness a positive impact in terms of growth and development. The success of "SuperPuna" will contribute to the country's economic prosperity and strengthen the position of Kosovo's youth in the workforce, ultimately building a brighter and more promising future for the nation.
