The Ministry of Youth and Sports (MTS) established a working group having the task to identify ways whereby young people can access banking loans in order to acquire residences. As for jobs for young people, Ridzi said that MTS has developed a national database with job vacancies intended for this category.
As far as European funding for youth is concerned, the Minister said that the European Social Fund could finance partnerships between universities and companies and the ERASMUS program could make disbursements for young entrepreneurs to start a business.
Another measure envisaged by MTS refers to assisting young people in receiving money for the associations they are affiliated to. Monica Iacob-Ridzi said that she wants programs providing funds for youth activities to continue.
„You will be able to access such funding from the state budget by submitting projects. Let’s try to do more with less money,” advised the Minister.
