THE stage is set for the National Youth Day slated for Mushagashe Vocational Training Centre in Masvingo on Wednesday, with youth participation in the national development agenda expected to be topical.

Briefing the media in Harare this Monday, Youth Empowerment, Development and Vocational Training Minister Honourable Tino Machakaire said more than 30 000 youths are expected to attend this year’s celebrations aimed at enhancing youth participation in issues of national development.

“The main purpose of these celebrations is to bring together the government and young people to engage on the potential of youth to participate in the economy and accelerate the achievement of Vision 2030.

“Well, the day has been identified as an opportune event that the government should invest in to celebrate with the young people taking stock of programmes and initiatives to inculcate values that our fore-bearers display for national development.

“To embrace the devolution mantra, the national event is expected to be attended by more than 30 000 young people drawn from all the 10 provinces of our country.”

Running under the theme: “Positioning Youth Empowerment and Development Towards Achieving Vision 2030”, the celebration will be preceded by a business forum to be held this Tuesday which will be attended by more than 250 youths from across the country.
