ABOUT 300 youths and potential business owners turned up for a one-day workshop that encouraged participants to start their own income-earning enterprises in Lautoka on Saturday.

The workshop focused on providing business ideas for young graduates and potential entrepreneurs in the West.

Organised by the Lautoka Chamber of Commerce and Industry — in conjunction with the National Centre for Small and Micro Enterprise Development, Fiji National University and Empower Pacific — the "Start Your Own Business" workshop was applauded by chief guest Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki.

Cdr Cawaki said the small and micro enterprise sector was vital to nation-building.

"The small business sector is an important economic growth contributor and has helped provide employment and income for countless number of people," he said adding that the workshop was a good way for young entrepreneurs to be able to set up their own small and micro enterprises.
