Ethical Entrepreneurship Days: Entrepreneurs Urged To Maximise Opportunities

Entrepreneurs Urged To Maximise Opportunities


Entrepreneurs nationwide have been called upon to exploit the battery of institutions and agencies government has put in place to boost the private sector and facilitate job creation. The Minister of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, Social Economy and Handicraft, Laurent Serge Etoundi Ngoa made the call while opening the 2017 edition of the Ethical Entrepreneurship Days at the Yaounde Multipurpose Sports Complex on November 9, 2017.

Minister Etoundi Ngoa made the generalized call after advising some 20 graduates of the School of Wealth Creation who received end-of-training certificates shortly before his speech.

Among the institutions the Minister enumerated alongside their benefits, were the SMEs Bank, the National Agency for the Promotion of SMEs, the Enterprise Creation Formality Centre, the National Enterprises Upgrade Office, as well as other ongoing initiatives like setting up of a legal framework to facilitate subcontracting between SMEs and multinational companies. He also advised all entrepreneurs to associate their businesses with digitalization, regardless of their nature. He said the introduction of the Ethical Entrepreneurship Days, formerly known as Christian Entrepreneurship Days initiated by Pastor Erika Lindou, is the type of initiatives the Head of State expects from the Cameroonian youth – ideas, which he said, spur youths to create jobs for themselves and their peers and by so doing, contribute to socio-economic development of the country.

Before cutting the symbolic ribbon opening exhibition of products by SMEs at the event ground, the Minister also assisted in the award of prizes to ten winners of a business plan competition organized during the 2016 edition of the Ethical Entrepreneurship Days. The prizes were offered by the Minister of Youth and Civic Education, Mounouna Foutsou who was also present at last Thursday’s event.
