“Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.”
For the least developed countries, the economic target is to attain at least a 7 percent annual growth in the gross domestic product (GDP). Achieving higher productivity will require diversification and upgraded technology along with innovation, entrepreneurship, and the growth of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Some targets are for 2030; others are for 2020. The target for 2020 is to reduce youth unemployment and operationalize a global strategy for youth employment. Implementing the Global Jobs Pact of the International Labour Organization is also mentioned.
Social enterprises create jobs while creating social impact through its economic activities. It is a vital contributor to inclusive and sustainable economic growth.
