YOUTHS in the country can soon be learning entrepreneurship after a Jakarta-based company showed interest in educating youths on entrepreneurship programs to begin this year.

The Ciputra Group of Companies, which owns various businesses in Jakarta in Indonesia, is working in consultation with the Prime Minister's office and the ministries of Labour and Social Welfare to include an entrepreneurship program this year.

Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola last week met with the founder of the Ciputra Group of Companies, which owns a number of properties, hotels, four universities which caters for 10 schools and several incubation centres on entrepreneurship.

Ratu Inoke said in an Information Ministry statement that the meeting was an excellent opportunity to meet Mr Ciputra and discuss developments in Fiji.

He said the meeting also laid the platform to further existing relations between the two parties.

He thanked Mr Ciputra on behalf of the people of Fiji for their support and assistance provided by his company.
