The government has decided to open youth centres in different areas of the Maldives for private sector administration and management.

After discussing a paper proposed by the Ministry of Human Resources, Youth and Sports, the Cabinet today decided to open the centres for bidding and award contracts to the parties with the best proposals.

The Cabinet also decided to give subsidy based on the demand for services at the centres.
The members of the Cabinet noted when civil society parties run the centres, more efficient and better services could be provided from the youth centres.

There are 12 youth centres in atolls established by the government.
