The Crown Prince Haakon urged young Africans to take responsibility for development when he opened  the conference for young entrepreneurship in sub-Saharan Africa.
- Young Leadership is important and necessary. You who are young are the future and we need you to go into leadership positions and contribute right now, said the Crown Prince in his speech.
Approximately 200 young people were gathered as the Peace Corps opened the conference "Young Leadership" in Oslo Thursday. Participants in entrepreneurship, development cooperation, youth, young politicians, Peace Corps workers and the business community gathered to discuss how young people can contribute to job creation in sub-Saharan Africa.
Among the many contributors was 21 years old Andrew Mupuya from Uganda, which started with 80 kroner in initial capital, but which now has Samsung as a customer, and 16 employees. His motto has been "start early, think big." Mupuya won The Anzisha Prize - the most prestigious prize in Africa for young entrepreneurs.
