He talked about Government interventions and programs targeting to empower the youth, women and people living with disability (PWDs), through the implementation of the Access to Government Procurement Opportunities (AGPO) initiative, which granted 30 per cent of government procurement opportunities to the marginalized groups.

The Government Spokesperson called on the young people to take advantage of such opportunities availed by the government to not only empower themselves but also create employment opportunities for other young people.
