JOHANNESBURG - Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa says government's attention needs to be on schools implementing entrepreneurial skills to encourage more business owners to strengthen the economy.

Ramaphosa delivered the keynote address at the launch of the global entrepreneurship week in Sandton on Friday.

He told delegates that the black majority is still on the back foot in terms of exposure.

“An education of an entrepreneurial nature where even at school, you have a course of entrepreneurship, that we should reconfigure the curriculum of our education system so that we can imbue young people with entrepreneurial knowledge from a very young age.”
