IN a bid to increase youth employment, the Lautoka Chamber of Commerce and Industries has joined the National Centre for Small Micro Enterprises and the Fiji National University.

The partnership has resulted in a one-day workshop that will educate graduates and school leavers on the secrets of turning a few pennies into a goldmine.

Chamber administrator and event co-ordinator Mohammed Salim said the workshop for about 300 Western youths would focus primarily on encouraging them to start their own businesses.

"It's a very simple concept. All they have to do is to think out of the box and with a little help from the right people they can go a long way," he said.

"One of the key issues that we'll focus on during the workshop is advice on how they can start their own businesses with zero cents to their name."
