Shillong, Jan. 29: The Confederation of Indian Industry's Young Indians (Yi) recently launched its chapter in Meghalaya, the 35th in the country.

Yi is an integral part of CII, a non-governmental, not-for-profit, industry-led and industry-managed organisation playing a proactive role in India's development process.

During the launch of the Meghalaya chapter of Yi , chief minister Mukul Sangma said it was vital for the youth to be able to make use of opportunities in the private sector, as there was limited space in the public sector.

He said with a population of 30 lakh, there are nearly 60,000 government employees.

"Meghalaya's growth will increasingly be tied to the spirit of entrepreneurship and the state's business leaders require support to achieve the vision of a prosperous Meghalaya," he said.

The chief minister also highlighted the opportunities to fulfil the agendas of the state through Yi and he looked forward to partner with the chapter to help the youth realise and achieve their dreams.

Yi was formed in 2002 with an objective of creating a platform for young Indians to realise the dream of a developed nation.
