What is ITC’s plan for the Ye! Community?
As ITC is a joint agency under the UN and the WTO, it ITC has huge access to policymakers, corporations, entrepreneurship institutions and much more. They will work to ensure that, across the world, these institutions are working to improve the ability for young people to start and run their own enterprises. And of course, to engage in international trade. Beyond this, they will provide you access to more programs and initiatives and to a larger support network.
Recently, ITC strengthened its commitment to supporting youth entrepreneurs. This makes the ideal new home for Ye!.
