Staff Reporter

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain Wednesday said that the future belonged to those countries whose youth would focus on entrepreneurship rather than jobs.

“The concept of an entrepreneur is fast emerging in the world and that the countries creating more entrepreneurs will be more successful in future,” the minister expressed these views while addressing a cheque & certificate-distribution ceremony of the Prime Minister’s Skill for all Hunermand Program, under Kamyab Jawan Programme initiative, at the Bahria University, Islamabad.

The minister stressed the need for adopting such skills that could be useful in facing the life challenges and the changes taking place around the world, saying “our thoughts must be progressive and should match the changes emerging around the globe.”

He was of the view that technology had changed the whole world and the same would happen in Pakistan too.

“The people who developed these technologies were not 60 years or 70 years old but they are the young people who changed the whole world.

They are youngsters,” he added.
The minister said that technology had changed the whole world and the countries that followed the changes had started emerging and moving towards the road of progress, prosperity, and development.

The minister said that the most important thing of the Successful Youth Programme was that it was creating employment opportunities, from which farmers, peoples associated with livestock and other sectors could benefit.
