, and the creation of job opportunities may be the only way to correct the situation.Lily said, “Youngsters are marred by poverty, dependency, dislocation and exploitation.”Speaking on the recent spate of events involving young people, Lily said, “The damage that young people have suffered physically, psychologically, socially, politically and economically, if unchanged will render them incapable of effectively fulfilling their social economic and reproductive roles in society.”The youth member said that the future of the country will be lost if the needs of those persons are continually ignored.To curb the downhill trend, Lily suggested that comprehensive strategies to create jobs should be devised.Apart from the Administration’s failure to create feasible methods to improve the youth affairs in the country, Lily highlighted that migration is becoming an increasing tendency.He pointed out that job creation, locally, may remedy the occurrence of migration since the growth of small, medium sized enterprises (SMEs) should be an integral part of the country’s job creation strategy. The youth member said that more than 60 percent of the labour force is engaged in SMEs. “But this (SMEs) requires capital and technical support for businesses of all sizes.” “Very few small businesses have access to concessionary capital through microfinance institutions; the ‘missing middle’ for firms seeking to grow.”GYSM said that the Culture, Youth and Sports Ministry should formulate inclusive,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping
