ST. GEORGE, GRENADA, DEC. 20, 2017 - The Private Sector continues to pledge its support to the Government of Grenada’s New Imani Programme.

The programme boasts of engaging more than 3000 youth, from 2013 after it was revamped, with hundreds gaining permanent employment, within the Public and Private Sectors.

Private Sector Representative in the Senate, Chris De Allie, during his contribution to the 2018 Budget Debate on Tuesday, Dec. 12, reiterated the importance of youth investment and development.

“We also believe that within the youth population of this country, we must provide some degree of hope,” said Senator De Allie.

“We must provide some degree of offering stability, that after you leave school, there is more that you can attain, whether through skills; whether through soft skills – whatever the case may be – and we must help support as best as we can.”

Stating that he has great belief and confidence in Grenada’s youth, the Senator further affirmed the need to provide continued support to that demographic.

“At the end of the day, I believe in our young people and I always say that and we need to find a way keep them going and protect them, as best as we can,” he said.

In response to Senator De Allie’s comments, Youth Minister, Senator Pamela Moses, gave the assurance that youth investment remains high on the Government’s agenda.

“Rest assured that we will continue to develop our youthful minds, promote our young people, provide them with all that they need, to carry on in our footsteps,” She said.

“Rest assured, Mr. President, that we will continue to provide avenues that they need, to grow to their full potential.”
