President Chandrikapersad Santokhi motivated young people at the meeting of the Surinamese United Youth Organization (SUYO) foundation.
The head of state addressed students and young people and motivated them. In his role as CARICOM chairman, he advised young people to make good study choices, because there is still a lot of potential regionally. The head of state therefore identified youth as one of the most important factors for the success of Suriname and CARICOM.
Due to the discovery of oil and gas for the Surinamese coastal plain, there will be a great need for technically skilled workers for both its exploration and exploitation, and the country must be able to respond to this. The president said that Education is of paramount importance to the development of the country, but especially your own. It is difficult to get anywhere without education. Working on your future depends largely on you as an individual.
