He said entrepreneurs should be allowed to flourish and their ideas should be allowed to blossom. He said considering that CARICOM governments were currently under such tight fiscal regimes that employment through traditional means was sometimes unavailable. According to him, entrepreneurship among youth should be encouraged and pointed to the Creativity for Employment and Business Opportunity (CEBO) programme as an example of an initiative being pursued by CARICOM to encourage young people to think about possible business opportunities and ideas that they could explore. Secretary General LaRocque said that for entrepreneurship to really be successful among youth, the ideas of children needed to be taken more seriously. Too often parents don’t recognise good ideas in a child. Children have fantastic ideas! We should encourage them,” Ambassador LaRocque stated.
