The Arandis Constituency Councillor has urged young people to be more innovative in order to come up with new business ideas to curb the high unemployment rate.

This was stated by Benita Imbamba during the handing over of equipment to small business enterprises in Henties Bay.

The equipment was procured through the Arandis Constituency Development Fund.

The fund has so far assisted 16 youth-related projects in both Arandis and Henties Bay.

Imbamba wants young people to come up with more innovative business ideas that will not only solve problems at home but also nationwide issues.

"Take your business seriously, expand it, market it well, and add value to your products as it grows; as it grows, try to employ your fellow community members so that we can prosper economically as a constituency."

About seven young people benefitted from the Arandis Constituency Development Procurement Project Fund.
