The next generation of Barbadians will largely be job creators, rather than job seekers.
That's the belief of Minister of Youth and Community Empowerment, Adrian Forde.
Minister Forde has pledged his ministry's continued support, to ensure this becomes a reality.
Mr Forde was speaking during the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme's business labs presentation and awards ceremony.
The evening featured business pitches from three groups of participants before a panel of judges.
Manager of the YES programme Selma Greene, reminded the participants that each of their business plans has the ability to create wealth.
