With a young population of 163 million, Ibero-America is in an advantageous demographic situation to boost entrepreneurship. Therefore, Casado, from Santa Cruz, has talked about the efforts made by the organizations of young entrepreneurs, represented by FIJE, in collaboration with the Council of Ibero-American Businessmen, CEIB, and the Ibero-American General Secretariat, undertaking joint activities. Proof of this is the recent Forum of Latin American MSMEs, held last July in Buenos Aires; or the business meeting in May 2019 in Bogotá, organized by FIJE, CEAJE and ANDI del Futuro on “Youth and Entrepreneurship; a commitment to development ”. In both activities, Narciso Casado participated, who highlighted the specific policies to support youth entrepreneurship carried out by CEOE, pursuing the commitments acquired within the 2030 Agenda, such as the creation of the Entrepreneurship Development Commission. The latter aims to respond to the interest of CEOE and its organizations and associated companies to promote, both among young people and in society in general, a positive attitude towards the role played by the entrepreneur and a greater knowledge of business reality.
IMPACT will also be held in the framework of the most important exhibition of South America, EXPOCRUZ 2019, from September 20 to 29 in the Bolivian city.
