'Efforts on to bring youth into mainstream'

Islamabad

December 2, 2019

Islamabad: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs Usman Dar has said sixty-eight percent of the population consists of youth and the government is trying to bring them into the mainstream.

Addressing a conference titled "State of Youth in Pakistan" here, he said the government's soft loan policy for youth across the country is to make them economically independent under Kamyab Jawan Programme. Usman Dar said the scheme is getting a prompt response and about seventy-five thousand youth ha filled in the online registration forms so far and the official website of the Prime Minister Kamyab Jawan Programme has received thirty-five million hits after its launch. He said that about 1 million applications for the Youth Entrepreneurship scheme had registered so far which shows it was a success.

He said that around two lakh applications of women had been filed as the program has reserved 25 percent quota for women.

He said that the scheme is receiving encouraging response among youth across the country. “Receiving a phenomenal number of one million applications for getting loans testifies popularity and appreciation of the programme among the people”, he said. Dar said feedback, suggestions and programme-specific input received through the registration forms would be duly analysed and incorporated in the policy-making process so that it serves aspirations of our enterprising youth.
