Cabinet this week approved the publication for public comment of the Draft Employment Tax 
Incentive Bill which is aimed at encouraging employers to give young people their first job 
experience as well as boost employment by firms operating in the Special Economic Zones 

The Bill gives effect to the announcement by the President in his 2010 State of the Nation 
Address and the National Youth Accord. National Treasury on Thursday briefed Parliament’s 
Standing Committee on Finance (SCOF) on the bill.
