"It was encouraging to receive the quarterly labour force survey for the third quarter of 2011 which reported that employment in South Africa had grown by 343 000.

"With the official unemployment rate now being around 25% having dropped from 27,7% it means we have regained almost a third of the jobs we lost from 2008 to 2009. It is also encouraging that the biggest growth has been recorded amongst the youth, the 25 to 35 age group," he said.

Zuma said he had called on all government departments, state-owned enterprises and development finance institutions to ensure that job creation was a priority.
