Estimated read time: 1'

The local government in Melilla is planning to set up a «construction and civil engineering school» to train unemployed people in the city and avoid relying on Moroccan workers. The decision was made one year after the closure of the border with Morocco, Europa Press reports.

Quoting the acting president of the public employment company Proyecto Melilla, Emilio Guerra, the agency explains that it is a «project that the autonomous city wanted to launch on several occasions».

According to the same source, the construction sector in Melilla has been affected by the closure of borders, especially as most people hired by this field come from Morocco.

«The citizens of Melilla can be trained in the construction industry and their skills can be put at the service of companies that require this type of workers», he added.

Europa Press notes that this is a project that the coalition government wants to carry out, due to the «growing demand for workers in the sector». Because of the closure of the borders with Morocco, the city started relying on workers hired in Spain, recalls the same source.
