You will be speaking on the topic Creating a Sustainable Economy through Entrepreneurship. Why do you think this discussion is important for Africa and Malawi in particular?
The importance of the topic is that we need to create sustainable economies, focusing on the long-term other than just focusing on today’s wants. People need to think about the future. Second, we have to leave the world a better place than we found it so that future generations can also enjoy better standards of living. The major reason is to create entrepreneurs who can create wealth and enjoy financial freedom. The theme is important because the idea is to eliminate poverty by empowering people with skills and knowledge coupled with secrets of creating understanding the business world. As a country, we want to remove the spirit of dependency on the government and well-wishers, which creates laziness of the populace and drives people into poverty. We want to promote economic upliftment among the citizens to ensure that they depend on themselves for survival and contribute to the growth of Malawi and African economies. We also want to eliminate fear and instil the spirit of self-confidence.
As a country, are we making progress in entrenching entrepreneurial spirit among Malawians and the youth?
As a country, we are trying by introducing courses which empower our youths to look at ent r epr eneur s h ip objectively. Second, there are various messages being flashed around urging our youths to venture into entrepreneurship.
