Professor Ahsan Iqbal, Federal Minister for Planning and Development, announced on Thursday that the government is starting the “Talented Youth Internship Programme” for 30,000 unemployed graduate youngsters in the country.

The minister, who presided over a meeting of private sector stakeholders to provide internships to young, stated that the internship will last six months and that the students will receive a monthly stipend of Rs25,000.

He added that the future of the country is dependent on the intentional education and skill acquisition of youth, as two-thirds of Pakistan’s population is under the age of 30.

Ahsan Iqbal argued that the ministry of planning’s principal responsibility is to plan the future of the youth and that Pakistan’s development is dependent on the active participation of the youth and the business sector.

He stated that 30,000 children would be given the opportunity to work in the sector through this program. The minister also emphasized the importance of putting aside differences and working together to lift the country out of its economic predicament. He added that when there is a fire in the house, the first thing to do is extinguish the fire.

He stated that every Pakistani should contribute to the country’s economic recovery. Every Pakistani must become a champion of the ‘Turnaround Pakistan Campaign.’
