QUETTA: Balochistan Governor Amanullah Khan Yasinzai has said that involving the youth in all socioeconomic activities and making them part of policy making is the need of the hour.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of “Governor’s Youth Pehchan Programme” here on Thursday, he said: “I want to assure you that this programme will create opportunities for students of backward areas. They will be a part of an excellent training and capacity building programme and career counseling facilities.”

Initially, this programme would be launched in Quetta, Pishin, Khuzdar, Nushki, Mastung and Kharan.

He appreciated linking of this programme with the campuses of universities in six districts of the province.

The governor said through this programme initially the youths of six districts would be enabled to realise their dreams. The programme was aimed at providing the youths an opportunity to acquire modern technical skills, he added.

Speaking on the occasion, federal Minister for Defence Production Zubaida Jalal, who is also an educationist and social worker, said that there was a time when government posts stayed vacant in far off areas of the province because no one was willing to fill them out of fear.

“Now the situation has improved and the Youth Pehchan Programme is a proof that now the citizens of Balochistan living in far off areas would also have access to equal educational and training opportunities,” she said.

Chief Executive of Individual Land Gulmina Bilal Ahmed said, “Today marks a historic day for the youths of Balochistan. The Balochistan government is going to keep its promise by initiating the Pehchan programme for the youths.”

She said the programme would allow the youths of Balochistan to polish their skills and have equal access to opportunities.

CEO of Balochistan Rural Support Programme Nadir Gul Barech, former Senator Saifullah Khan Magsi, vice chancellors of the universities, officials concerned and a large number of students were also present at the launching ceremony.

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
