  • [01] Government to build four refugee camps in Crete for 2,000 people

    Alternate Minister for Migration Policy Yiannis Mouzalas said on Thursday the government plans to build four refugee camps in Crete – one in each municipality - to house about 2,000 previously registered refugees and migrants.

    Mouzalas was speaking during a meeting in Iraklion on the refugee issue with the island's Prefect Stavros Arnaoutakis, local MPs and mayors. He said the centers will be constructed in November, so as not to coincide with the tourist season and will include small houses instead of tents. Refugees will also receive food, medical care and basic education for the children.

    "In the second phase, we'd like to ask Crete to accept about 2,000 refugees or migrants who will be distributed around the island. The prefecture and municipalities can work out how to distribute them and we will respect their proposals," the minister said.

    [02] More than 1 in 4 Greek youths is neither in employment nor in education - Eurostat

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA/M. Aroni) - More than 1 in every 4 young persons aged 20-24 was neither in employment nor in education or training (NEET) in Greece (26.1 pct) in 2015, the statistical office of the European Union (Eurostat) said on Thursday, the eve of the International Youth Day.

    This rate places Greece in second highest place in the EU, after Italy (31.1 pct), while Croatia (24.2 pct), Romania (24.1 pct), Bulgaria (24.0 pct), Spain and Cyprus (both 22.2 pct) follow.

    In contrast, the lowest NEET rates among young persons aged 20-24 were recorded in the Netherlands (7.2 pct), Luxembourg (8.8 pct), Denmark, Germany and Sweden (all 9.3 pct), Malta and Austria (both 9.8 pct) as well as the Czech Republic (10.8 pct).

    At EU level, almost 5 million young people aged 20-24 (or 17.3 pct) were in 2015 neither in employment nor in education or training. According to Eurostat's data, NEET rates increase considerably with age.

    Young people aged 15-29 account for almost 90 million people in the European Union, or 17 percent of its population.
