President Nana Akufo-Addo has hailed a collaboration between government and the private sector, which is expected to create 3,000 jobs for unemployed youths.
ECOBANK has offered to hire the 3,000 participants who have been selected for a three-month training program in online digital marketing and entrepreneurship.
The program is organised by the National Youth Authority in collaboration with the Accra Digital Center and the Ghana-India Kofi Annan ICT Center of Excellence.
An average of 300 youths from each of the 10 regions are expected to participate in the program fully paid for by the National Youth Authority.
"Mr. Speaker this is just the tip of the iceberg", he said at his second State of the Nation Address in Parliament Thursday.
The Senior minister Yaw Osafo Maafo represented the President at the launch of the training program at the Accra Digital Center.
The Sports minister Isaac Asiamah and Communications minister Ursula Owusu-Ekuful were present to witness the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the National Youth Authority and ECOBANK.
