PM and Labour Minister meets with the Employment Task Force

The Prime Minister Lyonchhen Tshering Tobgay and Labour and Human Resource Minister, Lyonpo Ngeema Sangay Chenpo met with the members of Employment Creation Task Force at the Gyalyong Tshogkhang this morning.

In the meeting, Lyonchhen thanked the members on behalf of Cabinet Ministers and the youth for dedicating their time and putting their voluntary efforts in preparing an extensive report towards creating employment opportunities for the Bhutanese jobseekers. However, Lyonchhen requested the members to revisit the report and try to further address the issue of providing jobs. For example – Should the government continue to be the main provider of jobs? Or should this responsibility be shared with private sector? Where are the opportunities for the government to create jobs?  How we can use hydropower to create employment?, etc. Lyonchhen also urged the members to look at the opportunities for self-employment by coming up with a list of areas in which our youth can venture into.
