From , 3:05 pm on 19 September 2017

Young Pacific people in New Zealand are being encouraged to apply for a new programme aiming to foster entrepreneurs.

The head of the Pacific Business Trust says a partnership with Massey University will encourage and support youth with startup ideas to become viable businesses by teaching them essential skills and creating new networks.

Kim Tuaine says the free three year programme is targeting young people who want to develop their business ideas.

Representatives from the Office of the Clerk helped with the Pacific Youth Parliament Simulation in Christchurch. One-hundred young Pacific people took part in the simulation in 2017.
