Panaji: Chief minister Pramod Sawant on Fridaysaid that many of the Goan youth are lured in the foreign countries with an offer of high-salaries job but finally realise that they are cheated.
Sawant appealed Goan youth to work within the state grabbing the available opportunities rather than falling prey for the lucrative job offers abroad. He was talking to reporters in Panaji on Friday.
“There are ample job opportunities in Goa for the locals. There are opportunities in all the sectors, one has to chose the job of his choice,” the chief minister said.
He said that at least two lakh jobs would be available in next five years in hospitality sector. “The Goan youth should be ready to grab these opportunities and make their career,” Sawant said.
He said that despite opportunities available within the state, some people are luring the youth with the promises of high-salaried jobs abroad. “I have several examples where youth are promised salary like Rs one lakh per month abroad and when he lands there, he realizes that he is cheated,” Sawant added.
The chief minister said that the youth should start working from Goa and then slowly walk up the ladder of career.
