A young and increasingly well educated labor force is looking for opportunities to use their skills and creativity. Governments will not be able to create these jobs in the public sector-nor will state-owned enterprises in a sustainable manner. The jobs will have to come from the private sector … That is what this report is about: enabling new generations of entrepreneurs to play a bigger role in the growth of their countries.'
