I totally agree that policy and structural frameworks play in supporting youth entrepreneurship, with good policies in place, an enabling environment will contribute towards the development of youth entrepreneurs
Belinda, waht sort of policies are we talking about here? enlightenment please.
Thanks KTembo for your query - Belinda can you please respond to Ktembo so that she can contribute to the discussion
Nellie and Kangwa, am talking of policies such as good deliberate govt policies aimed at promoting youth entrepreneurship such as loans with good repayment conditions, lower taxes, an enabling political environment,etc

If an enabling environment must be created, how do the frameworks work? with regards to Zambia, it doesn't look like CEEC is doing much for the youth. many have complained about the difficulty of receiving help from CEEC.
Thanks for posing thoseimportant questions Ktembo. Can we reflect on the questions and explore how frameworks can work in the case of Zambia. Citing real examples of how these frameworks work will help us understand the value of policy and structural frameworks.
Policy plays a very important role in developing and sustaining youth entrepreneurship. I strongly agree that governments must put in place a framework, and develop structures within which youth entrepreneurs will act --Susiku Nasinda 09:53, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
