Mr Alain A. Gbeasor, the Board Chairman of Alliance for Young Entrepreneurs, has appealed to the Government to create conducive atmosphere and enabling environment for the youth to go into entrepreneurship.

He said Ghana’s economy needed to be expanded and developed, which could only be done when young people got into business; “employ themselves and employ others”.

Mr Gbeasor, speaking to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, appealed to the Government to allocate  contract quotas to the youth, so that companies owned by the youth would not have to compete with the well-established ones for contracts.

He said as part of efforts to promote youth entrepreneurship, government must also give discounts on the cost of registration of their companies at the Registrar General’s Department and when registering their products with the Ghana Standards Authority and the Foods and Drugs Authority.

Mr Gbeasor, who is also a youth entrepreneur, urged young entrepreneurs to learn from the other entrepreneurs who had made it in life.

He urged entrepreneurs who had succeeded in their fields to put their success stories into writings so as to encourage young people to learn from them and start where they left off.
