Government to Focus on Proper Training along with Subsidized Loans for the Development of Entrepreneurship Culture in the Country
A high-level consultative meeting on Kamyab Jawan Youth
Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES) was held to brainstorm on effective implementation
mechanism of the scheme to ensure the creation of the maximum number of jobs through
entrepreneurship development in the country.
Mr. Muhammad Usman Dar, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs
co-chaired the meeting with Mr. Asad Umar, Chairman National Assembly Standing
Committee on Finance; Mr. Abdul Razak Dawood, Advisor to Prime Minister on
Industries & Production; and Ms. Sania Nishtar, Advisor to Prime Minister on Poverty
Alleviation & Social Safety. Leading experts from the SME sector of the country attended
It was highlighted in the meeting that besides access to finance, entrepreneurship
needs a mindset change by focusing on soft skills like courage to take risks, and
resilience in the face of odds, as fear of failure and loss is a major barrier for business
development. Therefore, the Government should rope in the right institutions and organizations
to impart proper entrepreneurship training to all the loan beneficiaries of the scheme in
order to make them successful and thriving businessmen. Only then, they would be
able to achieve Government’s objective of catering to unemployment through the
creation of maximum number of jobs
Mr. Muhammad Usman Dar thanked all the worthy participants of the meeting for their
valuable input to make the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES) a game-changer
initiative of the PTI Government for creating maximum jobs through entrepreneurship
development in the country.
