Due to the lack of sufficient jobs in the formal economy, Indonesia continues to promote entrepreneurship because of its potential for job creation and poverty reduction. No less than 17 ministries and national institutions are currently implementing programmes on youth entrepreneurship. While many are focusing on training of start-up micro businesses for underprivileged populations, others are also facilitating youth access to finance. Few, however, are looking at improving the environment in which youth enterprises operate.
