Government is planning to facilitate the grooming of students and young entrepreneurs by liaising with business professionals to teach and groom them on how to come up with business plans, the Minister for Business Development, Mr. Ibrahim Mohammed  Awal has said.

“We want to bridge the gap between academia and industry.Usually when people come from school, they are not able to fit into the job market so we want to get professionals’ whether with our bankers, engineers, doctors or ICT experts to go to various universities and polytechnics to teach and groom them on the various subject areas as this will help these students to come out with business plans” he said in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM.
