When asked about generational transition and the brain drain, MINTSS Grégoire OWONA tells us that transition is first and foremost natural, speaking of the life cycle common to all, but it is also governed by the labor code.
As for the brain drain, he tells us that the government is striving to create an environment conducive to the development of its citizens. He reminds us that this is a global problem, and urges young citizens, as the President of the Republic has done, to seize the many opportunities offered by Cameroon. He also admits that this brain drain can have a positive aspect, and encourages those who leave to come back and develop the country, because what's important is Cameroon's emergence.

Employment is vocational training magnified And vocational training is budding employment.

This is the summary of ISSA TCHIROMA BAKARY's answer to a question put to MINEFOP, asking about the importance of vocational training.
According to him, this is an indispensable sector for entrepreneurship and, by extension, import substitution. He expressed his delight at the Head of State's decision to liberalize vocational training and reduce its cost to the level of university fees for students in Cameroon (50,000fcfa). He urged young people to take advantage of this decision in favor of youth.

On the question of the nationalization of jobs, the member of the government admits that there are often concerns about skills in relation to international standards. Nevertheless, he assures us that measures are being taken to ensure that Cameroonians are trained in these various trades when foreigners are authorized to work in our country.

We need to develop capital to be able to exploit the wealth we have," said MINEFOP at the end of his speech, emphasizing the urgent need for competent, trained, enterprising and above all productive youth in Cameroon.

Now it's the turn of MINJEC, MOUNOUNA FOUTSOU to speak.

On the subject of the biometric youth card, the Minister tells us: "It's a card that enhances the value of young people.
It promotes both production and consumption, as the card enables young people to consume and their brothers to produce. The more young people, who represent around 70% of consumers, consume through the youth card, the greater the effect on production.

Talking about achieving the objectives of the SND30, the head of the youth department stresses that his department's projects and programs are in line with these objectives.

On the subject of emigration raised by the diaspora, he reassures this fringe of the Cameroonian population that his department takes them into account. He cites the diaspora youth return and integration assistance program and its sub-program, the diaspora and local youth joint venture, which welcome these young people and connect them to their local brothers and sisters, so that they can develop the country with their local knowledge.

He ended with a plea from the President of the BEN CNJC, who called for intensified exchanges with other ministerial departments, so as to have more arguments to give to her peers, and thanked all her counterparts who had come in large numbers to this meeting.
