Unemployment and government’s commitment!

Prime Minister Imran Khan, while inaugurating the Alberoni Heritage Trail at the historic Fort Nandana in Jhelum District, while stating the fact that providing employment to the youth is a major issue, rightly said that it can be solved by promoting tourism in the country. Can be done He said that developed nations continue to search for archeological excavations by excavating old buildings and historical sites while Pakistan has rich relics of sea, highest mountains and ancient civilization but these are of interest to tourists. Not working for He vowed that the government would build a model village on the site of Qila Nandana, where the great researcher Al-Biruni had discovered the diameter of the planet a thousand years ago, many years ago. It will be a source of opportunity. The fact of the matter is that unemployment and inflation are the biggest problems in the country at the moment that have plagued the poor and the middle class. The government is taking steps to control them, but due to many factors, neither inflation nor unemployment is declining. Last year, a Labor Force survey found that the number of unemployed people in the country during the 2020-21 fiscal year

The number will reach 6.5 million, up from 5.8 million last year. The bitter truth is that the number of unemployed unemployed with a degree is three times higher than the overall number of illiterate or less educated youth. The main reason for this is that our education system does not produce an educated workforce according to the needs and requirements of the national economy. The government’s annual plan for 2020-21 states that Pakistan has the ninth largest labor force in the world, which is growing every year but does not create jobs. Youth between the ages of 20 and 24 have the highest unemployment rate, while women also have higher unemployment rates than men. Pakistan is the sixth largest country in the world in terms of population. At present, its population is estimated at 219 million, which will reach 280 million by 2030. The enrollment rate in the country’s technical and training institutions is much lower than required, which is not in line with modern scientific and technological requirements. According to the government’s plan, vocational education is essential for a productive, well-paid and well-paid job. Fortunately, Pakistan’s workforce under the age of 30 is 63% higher than other countries. Unemployment among these youth can be overcome by imparting vocational education in accordance with economic requirements. The Prime Minister has vowed to promote tourism to increase employment opportunities, which is a right step. Tourism thrives when there is ideal peace and order in the country. The current law and order situation is largely satisfactory and conducive to tourism. If efforts are made to boost the growth rate of the country’s economy, the production process in industrial, agricultural and other sectors can also be accelerated, which will create new employment opportunities. On the one hand, this will activate the world’s largest workforce in the country, and on the other hand, it will help reduce unemployment. The government will have to take practical steps in this regard by taking a close look at all aspects of the wider economy.
