Adequate deployment of information communication technology is a potent weapon against massive youth unemployment ravaging the country, an Austrian-based ICT Expert, Walter Mayer, has said.

Mayer, who gave the advice in Abuja at a roundtable on Dynamics of Agro-ICT Satellite Solutions, convened by Dilimson Holdings Limited, in conjunction with the Austrian Chamber of Commerce, said unemployment level in the country would be cut by half if government embraced Geo satellite equipment in agriculture business.
