E for entrepreneurship

Guest Post by Trishna Rana, WB-SAES Youth Delegate from Nepal

Entrepreneurship is now such a buzz word in Nepal and rest of South Asia. But how well do we understand it? Does our education system foster the kind of creativity and originality that is needed for real entrepreneurship? Are governments easing the process for an individuals or groups o start their own business or are they impeding it with endless red tape? Although the ASEAN does have its own intricacies and challenges, it seems like a good role model to emulate. Particularly impressive is how ASEAN countries are forging ahead with the theme of ‘complement, not compete’ as countries look to specialize in certain industries, while building a singular production centre in the region.
