The migration of Nepali youth to places like America, Australia including different European countries is not a new thing. During the past years; youth migration was in limited numbers, but in recent years, we know the Nepali youth has been looking at setting in distant places for a long time, and this drain is due to the lack of opportunities in the country for a long time now. Political instability and the messy environment created by it; is the major reason for this.
The growth of industry in Nepal has been frustrated by political conflict and strikes, which is one of the prominent reasons for the flight of the youth. There has been no clear cut policy or incentives by the government to the industrialists, who through industrialization could initiate the creation of mass employment opportunities in the country, which could wipe out entice of going abroad. Government should have the comprehensive policy in place, promoting industrialization in the country, creating jobs and an education pattern which should be job oriented but they are not prioritizing such things.
The process of migration brings about many bittersweet truths in which the aspirants are actually falling prey to some of the most heart wrenching episodes of human trafficking and unspoken horrors. What do you think should be the role of government to save the youth of Nepal; and to create opportunities for them within our country? Let’s talk about it.
