Grenada: Prime Minister promises to invest more in youth development

Prime Minister, Dr the Right Honourable Keith Mitchell, who recently assumed the Youth Development portfolio, plans to invest more resources in empowering the nation’s youth.

However, at a meeting with senior officials in the Ministry of Youth Development on Tuesday, the Prime Minister warned that resources must be optimised and should not be wasted, particularly as the country continues to feel the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dr Mitchell said, “Government’s investment in youth development has been significant and I am prepared in the upcoming budget cycle to seek additional resources. However, the quantity of Government’s investment cannot be the only method by which we assess ourselves. We must examine ways to improve the effectiveness of the programmes as we seek to truly empower our young people.”
