Forthcoming policy developments

The government initiative for the promotion of social entrepreneurship was approved, through the adoption of the legislative framework for the establishment of Social Enterprises. The Action Plan will endorse 3 priorities:

- Creating a friendly business environment

- Promoting a culture of social entrepreneurship

- Enhancing Access to Funding

The Action Plan is put forward by the Department of Administrative Reform.

Moreover, as mentioned in the National Strategy for Lifelong Learning 2014-2020, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Youth is in the process of developing a mechanism for validation and recognition of non-formal and informal learning which will also cover how entrepreneurial competences are acquired through non-formal and informal learning.
