Shafqat Mahmood said the government had taken special measures to provide an environment to the youth where they could learn and explore their abilities and skills, adding the government would provide incentives besides facilitating the private sector in setting up institutions to promote skills of people.

He said that private sector should also come forward through social corporate responsibility to put the country on way to development and progress for providing various skills to educated youth of the country.

Earlier, the minister unveiled the plaque for ground-breaking of Academic Block II of Infinity School of Engineering after visiting various departments of Infinity Engineering.

Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industries Almas Hyder, Pakistan Association of Automotive Parts & Accessories Manufacturers (PAAPAM) vice chairman Basharat Javed and others also spoke on the occasion.
