Accra, Sept. 27, GNA
– The John Agyekum Kufuor (JAK) Foundation has entered into a partnership
agreement with the Brazil-Africa Institute, for an exchange programme involving
members of the Kufuor Young Entrepreneurship Network (K-YEN), in the area of
entrepreneurship training.

The agreement also
seeks to promote the exchange of ideas of the youth of both countries to
enhance their entrepreneurship skills for economic development.

The Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU), was signed in Accra, after the fifteen pioneer members of
the K-YEN was inaugurated, which would see the nurturing of young and brilliant
Ghanaian entrepreneurs with ideas, coaching, mentoring and securing funds to
promote their ventures.

Professor Joao Bosco
Monte, President of the Brazil-Africa Institute, said the signing and launch of
the K-YEN, was an opportunity for the young entrepreneurs to stay focused and
make good use of every avenue being created through the MOU.

According to him, the
Brazil-Africa Institute is very instrumental in building a nation through youth
involvement, saying “this MOU would seek to promote the improvement of business
practices and the business environment and encourage young entrepreneurs to go
into business investments.

Mr Edward Effah, Chief
Executive Officer, Fidelity Bank, congratulated John Agyekum Kufuor for his
role in shaping the lives of the young entrepreneurs by giving them the
platform and opportunity to develop and affect the economy.

“Creating
entrepreneurs would provide a sustainable economic growth in Ghana, which is
very critical for the country’s development and I would urge these young ones
to stay focused and look for benchmarks within their industry to look up to”.
