As far as the responsibility of job creation is concerned. We agree with our President to a degree because we believe that.

We believe that any company allowed to operate within a border of a nation should contribute to Social Development projects. And Economic Development (E.D.) projects, and we are positioned to ensure that the contributions made are used effectively to the benefit of the intended purposes.
One of our projects is the Job Center and this department has various functions. Mainly, we give assistance to job seekers so that they can get their employment documents in order. We also register them on a database that is easily available to prospective employers. However, this is not enough to help the unemployed. We need to create jobs for them with the assistance of the public who also needs to be involved in job creation projects.

This will also include various homeless people such as the street homeless. The homeless in shelters, or those who are near homeless. Within our project, various jobs will be created. Revenue generated will be used to create new ED projects that will also generate revenue and create jobs.
