Sub Councils > Egyptian Forum for Youth Employment Promotion (Egypt-YEP)
The Egyptian National Competitiveness Council (ENCC) is committed to enhancing Egypt's competitiveness in the global market. One of its critical policy advocacy areas is promoting youth employment and entrepreneurship through its Sub Council, the Egyptian Forum for Youth Employment Promotion (Egypt-YEP).
Egypt-YEP's vision is to create a dynamic and supportive ecosystem for youth employment and entrepreneurship in Egypt. The Sub Council recognizes that young people are a critical driver of economic growth and development and aims to support their integration into the workforce and encourage their participation in entrepreneurship and innovation.
In the past, Egypt-YEP has played a vital role in advocating for policies that promote youth employment and entrepreneurship in Egypt. The organization recognizes the critical challenges facing young people in accessing job opportunities and launching their own businesses.
To address these challenges, Egypt-YEP has engaged with government agencies, private sector stakeholders, and civil society organizations to identify key challenges and opportunities facing young people in Egypt. The Sub Council has supported the development of policies that promote entrepreneurship and innovation, increase access to education and training, and provide opportunities for youth leadership and mentorship.
Some of the specific initiatives that Egypt-YEP has undertaken in the past include:
Supporting the establishment of youth entrepreneurship and innovation centers that provide training, mentorship, and networking opportunities for young entrepreneurs.
Advocating for policies that support the inclusion of youth in the labor market and address the specific challenges they face, such as limited work experience and discrimination.
Conducting research and analysis on youth employment and entrepreneurship trends and disseminating this information to policymakers and other stakeholders.
Looking to the future, Egypt-YEP remains committed to promoting policies that support youth employment and entrepreneurship in Egypt. The organization recognizes that youth unemployment remains a significant challenge in the country, and that there is a need for continued efforts to address this issue.
To achieve its goals, Egypt-YEP will continue to engage with stakeholders across the public and private sectors to identify emerging trends and challenges in the area of youth employment and entrepreneurship. The Sub Council will work to develop evidence-based policies and programs that address these issues and support the development of a more supportive ecosystem for youth employment and entrepreneurship.
Additionally, Egypt-YEP will seek to enhance collaboration and coordination among different actors in the youth employment and entrepreneurship ecosystem, including government agencies, youth groups, civil society organizations, and the private sector.
In conclusion, Egypt-YEP's policy advocacy efforts in the area of youth employment and entrepreneurship are critical to Egypt's long-term competitiveness and economic growth. By promoting policies that support youth entrepreneurship and innovation, increase access to education and training, and provide opportunities for youth leadership and mentorship, the Sub Council is helping to ensure that young people can participate fully in the economy and that Egypt can tap into the full potential of its human capital.
