Mr. Demaj, in this information session, focused his speech on the job opportunities for young men and women through Employment Centre, where he talked about the most demanded professions and about the professional training opportunities that this center offers. Whereas, Ms Nushi emphasized that the training and education in western countries which can be used by the youth for intellectual and professional capacity building, would be beneficial for our country, thus encouraging young men and women that were participating in the information session to use the legal migration as the only means to use for these opportunities
