Grenada's Government says it’s making gains in driving down youth unemployment in the country.

Youth Minister Roland Bhola says the Keith Mitchell led administration has found employment for nearly 4000 young people since it was elected four years ago.

Bhola was responding to a question posed by a local journalist during Tuesday’s post cabinet news briefing.
