Wales could be on the brink of a youth business boom, according to a new report. A study by the Prince's Trust and RBS shows that a quarter of Wales' young people believe they will be self-employed in the future. Around a quarter also said they expect to be their own boss in the next five years.
Twenty-five percent of young people included in the survey also say they are thinking of setting up their own business.
"This research reveals an increasingly entrepreneurial mood among young people in Wales. Five years on from the start of the recession, youth unemployment remains high and many are seeing self-employment as a way to break the cycle of joblessness.
"Setting up in business can be tough - but at The Prince's Trust we have a 30-year track record of helping disadvantaged young people succeed in work and self-employment, no matter what their background. It is critical we nurture young people's passion for business and invest in the next generation."
