Abi Rumia

“Since my election in 2009, I have discovered that the biggest forms in Lebanon are the Lebanese youth,” he said. Despair and frustration, because the youth of Lebanon look to their country as if they had no horizon or a future to stay in it, and if not for individual and private initiatives, we could not secure the ingredients of a decent life. When the youth committee was received it was mostly sporty. Youth life The Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Ministry of Labor and other ministries, and to this end I met with representatives of youth organizations representing different political parties. In 2012 we launched a youth policy document that reflects the concerns of the Lebanese youth and their daily problems. “

He said: “I am sorry that the Lebanese parliament has turned into a market for political grievances through aggressive and offensive speeches. The main concern is how to secure the best future for our youth. Sometimes I feel that I am shouting alone in the desert. I want to declare a state of emergency in Lebanon. .

He said: “We studied with the United Nations. The figures were very frightening, firstly because 86 percent of Lebanese youth are their goal and their dream of emigration. This is a number that is shocking to us as politicians. Second, 66 percent of immigrants represent young people. Put an end to it, in addition to the fact that, despite the prevailing unemployment in Lebanon, 60 percent of those aged between 18 and 29 years. “

“In all countries of the world, the main concern for governments that are emerging is how to combat unemployment. In Lebanon, unfortunately, there are no precise figures in this regard, because we simply do not have accurate statistical institutions. In Lebanon, through various initiatives, the most important of which is the existence of a policy that is compatible with all the relevant ministries to enhance the dignity of young Lebanese who, if migrated Lebanon, means that 70 or 80 percent of them will not return, and Lebanon could then go extinct.

“We are taking a number of initiatives at YED, and Jbeil Square is an arena for its experience, and we rejoice when we have twinning and partnership with universities like AUT, which we share in this concern.
