Proposal for Effective Implementation of Punjab Internships Program


I made the following presentation to the Chief Minister of Punjab, Mian Shahbaz Sharif for effective implementation of the Internships program the government had announced earlier. The program is to be implemented with a budget of PKR 1.5 Billion or USD 16 Million to provide the youth of the province with an opportunity to intern with both public and private institution based on merit.

Presentation made to Chief Minister Punjab for proposal to implement the $16 Million youth internship program

The program fundamentally provides a mechanism to match the demand in the industry with the supply of young graduates in an efficient and transparent manner while at the same time providing for the development of a central portal that can serve as platform to provide placement services for this youth in the future. We may not be able to implement the entire program in its entirety, but the Chief Minister was very receptive to the proposal and formed a high level committee to execute the plan as best as it can be, given the limited time frame.
