Story Impact

As Palestine stands amongst the 4th highest unemployment rate for youth in the world, the youth unemployment increased to 46.30% in 2017. Therefore, the creativity and energy of talented young Palestinians is being invested in outside the country due to the lack of local employment opportunities as well as the political obstacles Palestinian employees face daily.
Entrepreneurship is a significant stepping stone in the process of decreasing the level of youth unemployment. While adopting this approach to deal with the increased level of unemployment in Palestine, many business advisories, consulting services and incubators are trying to attract the youth population towards the private sector and self-employment. This is consistent with the fact that the economic indicators show increases in the level of unemployment in Palestine to 29% in 2017 from 27% in the prior year.

Despite the difficulties,

15% of Palestinian university graduates have attempted to start their own businesses in 2016.
