The regional business-forum "Young people in business" took place in Gostiny Dvor Shopping mall today. Its organizer is the international organization AIESEC-Ufa. The participants of the forum numbered 50 delegates from Samara, Izhevsk, Perm, Kazan, Ufa.

"One of the forms of support rendered to the youth is help in starting their own business, and the present forum is a great help in this respect" — Gulnaz Muratova, the head of the sector on work with working youth and local business development of Ministry for Youth Policy, Sports and Tourism RB said — "We have held an opinion poll among young people of our republic asking them about what keeps them from starting their business, and almost everybody answered: lack of experience and education. We hope that this forum will help them to eliminate this gap".

"It is very important that while being students young people have a chance to get necessary knowledge to start their business. This knowledge will help them in choosing their carrier and realization of their plans" — Roman Lozhkin, the representative of Alyans ROSNO Zhizn, said speaking about his company.

Young people had an opportunity to have different trainings, such as "Marketing is a secret weapon of a businessman", "Forms of support of entrepreneurship", "Communications in business", "To sell yourself means to sell the idea. The skill of public speaking" and others.

One of the most active participants of the forum Jan Kulikov is the founder of the Perm branch of AIESEC International organization.

"I am very glad new participants join our ranks" — Jan Kulikov said — "I have brought one of the largest delegations consisting of 17 people to the forum in Ufa. The need of such events has existed for a long time. The number of activists in Perm branch of AIESEC has grown to 40 people for two months only, and, unfortunately, not all of them were able to come here".
