The youth have been encouraged to use the 2010 FIFA World Cup as a platform to realise their dreams of owning a business.



"This world cup is here to create a future for you and it is in your hands to take it or not. I encourage you to make contact with relevant institutions which may help you to start small businesses now," said Danny Jordaan, Chief Executive Officer of the 2010 Local Organising Committee.

Addressing students at CIDA City Campus in Johannesburg on Wednesday, Dr Jordaan said the World Cup was a platform for the youth of South Africa to start their small businesses as well as participate in a major international event.

"The world is coming to you. I encourage you to take this chance and work according to your capacity to accomplish your intended dreams."

He said one of their primary objectives of bringing the world cup to South Africa was to create jobs and business opportunities for the people of South Africa.

"Youth participation in micro and macro enterprise sectors, particularly in tourism and hospitality is important for this world cup," he said.

Dr Jordaan also said women should not be left out of these opportunities as they were also important in the delivery of the best World Cup ever. - BuaNews
