Increasingly governments across Asia are exploring how social enterprises can be supported to deliver more social impact, and they are beginning to innovate with a range of policy and legislative tools in order to achieve this. Education institutions are also starting to develop new and innovative programmes to ensure that future business leaders are equipped with the right skills to lead the development of the social economy.
This expert discussion aims to share lessons from a number of governments which have established innovative policies and launched new initiatives to strengthen social enterprises and social investment, as key elements to a thriving social economy. It will also be an opportunity to discuss the relative impact of different approaches to civil society, private sector and social impact organisations. Finally the discussion will focus on how we can ensure that young people have the right skills to lead this new economy.
