Future rests on youths

Youths will be instrumental in re-building our fragmented society, they will build the economy and make decisions that will impact the future generation.

This was highlighted by National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad during the NFP National Youth Conference at the Jai Narayan College yesterday.

Prof Prasad said young people had the dreams, imagination, sensitivity and flexibility to help address issues we faced in Fiji today.

"At NFP we recognise this resourcefulness and aim to include our youths in efforts to address Fiji's governance problems and efforts at nation building," Prof Prasad said.

"The party has held three mini conferences in the Northern, Western and the Central divisions to give Fiji's youths a chance to discuss their concerns on Fiji's governance and its impacts on youth development."

He said the national youth conference was a chance to reaffirm those concerns, expand on policy platform as articulated in the party manifesto and seek validation for the work undertaken to date by NFP youths.

"Today the youths are going through the manifesto and from here they will go around the country to campaign on the issues that are highlighted in the manifesto," he said.

"This is basically to get our youths to understand issues they face like the education and also other issues that the country faces such as health and the economy."
