State Minister for Youth and Sports Zahid Hasan Russell made the remarks on Tuesday (June 30th) at the eighth episode of the Awami League’s special webinar ‘Beyond the Pandemic’ on Corona and later Bangladesh. During the discussion, State Minister for Youth and Sports Zahid Hassan Russell said, “As a result of
Corona, many of our youth communities, like those around the world, who are in various workplaces, will become partially or completely unemployed.” We have planned to provide training in various trades and provide loans to these suddenly unemployed people who have left or are thinking of moving to rural areas to create self-employment and increase their skills. We have halved the interest on loans. In order to ensure that no one is unemployed in this Mujib year, we have made an agreement with Karmasangsthan Bank to launch a project called ‘Bangabandhu Youth
Loan’, where a loan facility of minimum Rs 20,000 to maximum Rs 500,000 will be provided without collateral. At the behest of the Prime Minister, we want to build the skilled population of the unemployed across the country. And I will arrange their training as he is. Our target is to create employment for 12 lakh skilled youth in the next three years.
