We agreed come next year, after we form government, we will embark on the ambitious program to ensure that our youth have a gainful employment. We will set up a county industrial park to create employment and undertake to send over 300 youth abroad every year,” Buzeki said.

Further, he pledged to also set up business incubation centers and innovations hubs for young people to try new ideas.
