BUCHAREST/SARAJEVO, May 28 (FENA) - “Young people are one fifth of the overall population of the Western Balkans (WB), and they are the most educated share of our workforce. Still, we haven’t managed to create a system of opportunities for these young people to work and engage in their societies in the region, while they rightfully expect us to. We need to invest more in the youth, to make them stay and invest their talent in improving theirs and our lives, for that matter. This is the least we can do for our future”, said Majlinda Bregu, Secretary General of the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) at the opening of the Conference ‘How to better respond to European aspirations of the young generation in the Western Balkans?’, organized by the Romanian Presidency of the EU Council in partnership with the RCC.
