The State government is trying to reduce the number of employees in the over-saturated government sector over time. Out of a population of around 20 lakh, nearly 1,65,000 people (approximately 8.25% of 20 lakhs) are engaged in government jobs. 

This was stated by advisor (Horticulture), Mhathung Yanthan at an Emporium Skill Training Institute (ESTI) registration program for unemployed youth on February 9. The registration program was held for approximately 30 candidates from 39 Sainis A/C, sponsored by the advisor to train at Emporium, Half Nagarjan, Dimapur.  
Addressing the candidates, Yanthan, as the guest speaker stated that he viewed unemployment as being among the biggest challenges and he always had the urge to help unemployed youth of the state. But he also urged Naga youth to not only hope for and attempt to get into government jobs but also venture out into the private sector. On the work mindset and culture prevalent in Nagaland, Yanthan stated that Nagas in general lack job satisfaction and only opt for salaried work. 
When asked why he was sponsoring the candidates, Yanthan said that he wanted to create good denizens for the state, and provide job opportunities for unemployed youth. He also urged the candidates to be sincere, disciplined and to acquire knowledge through hard work throughout the course. 
Operation Head, India and International, Emporium, Anirban Mukherjee, gave an introduction to the Emporium, where he stated that it was started in August 29, 2018 for Nagaland, and has already trained 220 people, out of which, all have be placed successfully in various of parts of India and abroad.
