Windhoek - Namibia's Minister of Sport, Youth and National Service's executive director, Emma Kantema, on Monday reaffirmed her ministry’s commitment in establishing an environment for youth empowerment in the country.
Speaking during the official opening of the SADC Youths senior officials and stakeholders meeting, Kantema said her ministry is intensifying efforts to realize the objective in-line with the 38th SADC Summit theme, ‘Promoting infrastructure development and youth empowerment for sustainable development’.
“The youth are the backbone of any society, hence, youth empowerment is a key agent for achieving economic transformation and social changes required for sustainable development.  Investing in youth is a prerequisite for building a sustainable future.  It is a high priority to provide young people with the skills and opportunities they need through the mobilization of smart and targeted investments,” she said.
She said the ongoing SADC Youth Senior officials meeting comes at the most convenient time where the region is deliberating on the operationalisation of the theme. 
The SADC Youth Senior officials meeting was held ahead of the SADC Ministers of Youth meeting on Thursday at Safari Court where further decisions on youth issues in the region will be endorsed.
