Great piece Michael. On this subject I believe we all – young people, organizations and governments – have something to do. Starting from the government, I think providing or setting the "right" environment to attract this group is imperative. These include facilities and important services like power supply and internet accessibility, though the government might not have direct or absolute control, mechanisms can be put in place to ensure its adequacy.
On the other hand young people would have to exhibit great sense of responsibility and determination to succeed back at home especially when they find themselves in the public sector due to unnecessary oppositions from coworkers. Though research has proved that most of these young people would like to return as entrepreneurs, I think we are failing to ask ourselves where they will like to establish these businesses and even reside. If they all end up in the country’s capital then what are we promoting? That will be another challenge. But I believe targeted and practical policies or programs can address these issues.
