Joy said that the government's income is increasing every year. Allocation for training and research for young people will also be increased.
Responding to the question posed by the participants, he said that ICT training will be taken outside Dhaka. Such events will be conducted outside Dhaka. Training on how to become a freelancer will also be given.
He said different skills development training programs will be taken for those who have never been to school, or dropped out. It is not possible for everyone to get employment with education. Therefore, projects will be taken for those who are out of education.
