THE NFP says it is interested in listening to the youths of this country.

Party youth wing leader Usaia Moli who was in Labasa said the party had started with its youth campaign in a bid to listen to the youths and get their views.

"We registered some 80 youths in our mini-youth forum in Labasa on Saturday," Mr Moli said.

He said the forums gave youths an opportunity to voice their concern.

"We want to listen to their views and add them to our manifesto."

He said the issues affecting youths ranged from the environment to employment.

"Natural resource management is the major issue that the youths are concerned about. Youths want more consultation on mining issues.

"They also want more employment opportunities, transportation is another issue and more youths are concerned about the issue of NCDs."

Mr Moli said youth have also called on more youth-centred development programs in the country.

"We will hold more youth forums to get the views of the youth in the country and we will incorporate them in our manifesto."

He said the party would hold a major youth conference on July 26 in Suva.
