Youth unemployment has become an alarming trend in many MENA countries. In Lebanon, the problem is particularly acute, with almost 60% of the country’s youth not being able to find a job after they finish their studies. Furthermore, many young people leave the country to pursue better opportunities abroad. A report from the International Labour Organisation (ILO) found that more than 30% of university graduates aged 21-35 were living abroad as expatriates.

As a result, Marwan Kheireddine is happy to see that more and more initiatives target our young generation positively by creating job opportunities and providing them with the skill sets necessary for success in today’s economy.
