 The number of unemployed educated youth in Afghanistan reached 1.5 million, said the deputy of youth affairs in the Ministry of Information and Culture.

"In Afghanistan, we have nearly 3 million educated youth, half of them are unemployed," a local media outlet Tolonews quoted Mohammad Yunus Rashed as saying.

Quoting the official, the media outlet reported Friday that the caretaker government would spare no efforts to create job opportunities for the people, especially the educated youth of the war-torn country.

Thousands of Afghan students graduate from universities annually and enter the job market in the country, but many of them due to poverty and lack of jobs leave their homeland for abroad including neighboring states.

This year, more than 84,000 students excluding girls attended the university entrance exam, and more than 70,000 of them have found their way to higher education, semi-higher and private universities; while in 2022 about 150,000 students attended the entrance exam, with 35 percent of them girls.
