We must give green light to young entrepreneurs. Since the day of its establishment "Shymkent" Social and Entrepreneurship Corporation has been paying special attention to youth.

In early February we will hold a festival of ideas for schoolchildren, students of colleges and tertiary institutions. We will also launch a business school where our youngsters will explore the fundamentals of entrepreneurship," Ayupov said.
