The action of entrepreneurship in society is a major issue for the future of employment, said Tuesday in Rabat, the Minister of Economic Inclusion, Small Business, Employment and Skills, Younes Sekkouri.
Speaking at the opening of the Regional Conference for North Africa, initiated by the African Development Bank Group (AfDB) and the Ministry of Economic Inclusion, Small Business, Employment and Skills, Sekkouri said that “the action of entrepreneurship must be at the service of and in interaction with the State.”
“To undertake in society is also an individual act which has all its meaning for the individual who undertakes”, noted the Minister, adding that entrepreneurship is imposed as a major corridor of possibilities and opportunities.
The Minister has, in this sense, explained that the action of entrepreneurship should no longer be synonymous with an act of creating businesses and jobs, but it should be “encouraged otherwise” by the government.
“We realized during the COVID-19 crisis that the weight of information technology was crucial and determining in the resilience of a number of business sectors,” noting that the renewed action of the state was also at the heart of the recovery.
He stressed the importance of redefining entrepreneurship paradigms to challenge the action and supervision of the state of different actors and new types of partnerships, necessary to make Morocco a true generation of entrepreneurs.
This generation of entrepreneurs, he said, is at the heart of the transformation models of countries, stating that the weight of intangible capital is an element of transformation of the economies of states and nations.
