Business Environment Reform for Supporting Young Entrepreneurs: Opportunities for the ACP region
Many countries in the ACP (Africa, Caribbean and Pacific) region have made supporting young entrepreneurs a top priority for economic development and youth employment. Despite this, young entrepreneurs face challenging business conditions and complicated policy and regulatory contexts in launching and running their businesses. This webinar hosted by the ICR Facility provided an opportunity for policymakers and stakeholders to explore ways to create a more favourable business environment in support of young entrepreneurs. Attendees could discover key findings from the ICR Facility's latest report and hear from expert speakers sharing best practice and experiences from across the region. Additionally, attendees were able to participate in breakout groups with key experts and practitioners, offering a chance to engage with peers and understand steps actors in ACP countries can take to support reforms that will have a positive impact on young entrepreneurs.
Watch the recording to find out more about what youth needs and desires when it comes down to creating and conducting a business, and how could government help address their needs to ensure the growth of youth business enterprise.
