As a measure to cut down graduate unemployment in the country, the Ghana National Service Scheme yesterday launched a stakeholders’ conference at the College of Physicians and Surgeons to deal with the issue.

The Executive Director of the scheme, Alhaji Imoro Alhassan, who was present at the launch, stated that the NSS would focus more on engaging agencies to widen ideas to curtail the problem.

About 400 organizations and stakeholders have been invited to attend the event. The forum according to Alhaji Imoro, would offer a platform for all to share their experience with the audience.

The theme for the conference is “Building Entrepreneurial and Employable Youth for National Development: The Role of the National Service Scheme and Stakeholders”. And it comes off at the National Theatre, Accra on August 7, 2014.
