The National Youth Commission launched its second Annual Work Plan, with the aim of reflecting the type of work the National Youth Commission (N.Y.C) will do, to assist young people in the country.
Three impact projects will be implemented this year by the Commission, to address the needs and aspirations of young people in PNG.
Youth empowerment is very important in the country as many young people are seen on the streets, and are unemployed.
The annual work plan for 2014 will look at implementing the idea expressed in Vision 2050, with the strategic direction given in the Development Strategic Plan, and the activities outlined in the Medium Term Development Plan, which relates to assisting the development of youths in the country.
The three major projects the Commission will be implementing this year, include the Revitalization of the National Youth Commission, the Construction of the National Youth Development Institute, and Youth Friendly centers, and the Development of Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship.
Caretaker Commissioner, Bui Lee Wetao, said the Commission will make every effort to implement the key priorities as the work plan is centered on the three priority areas.
The Commission’s mandate is to address the needs of young people in the country, and should look at young people as assets, and an investment for the country rather than seen as a liability.
The Commission also presented its Annual Performance Report for 2013, detailing the activities the Commission undertook in implementing the three priority areas.
