According to the reports by Radio Pakistan, the Prime Minister Youth Affairs Program has planned to initiate a program called the ‘National Internship Programme’ for the fresh graduates in Pakistan.
The main purpose to launch the internship program for the fresh graduates in Pakistan is to create maximum employment opportunities for the youth of the country, an official said.
The details further said that after completing the duration of internship, the participating graduates would be offered jobs in public and private sectors on the basis of their performances during the internship.
The programme initiated by the PTI-led government would not only help to reduce the ratio of unemployment among the youth across the country but also serve to address several economic and social sectors demanding human resources.
After coming into the power in 2018, the federal government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had promised to provide jobs to the ten million people of Pakistan.
Earlier in February, PTI-led federal government of Pakistan, in collaboration with Small Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA), started a program called ‘Kamyab Jawan Program’ to fulfil its promise about creation of ten million jobs and announced to create one million jobs for the youth of Pakistan.
“In this program, SMEDA will find the top most business ventures in the both local and international markets,” an official of the Youth Affairs department said.
“Youth Affairs department established by the Prime Minister would provide every possible support for improving vocational and technical skills of the youth of Pakistan,” he added.
