Issues of youth unemployment, demand for jobs, and state support are of primary concern for developing nations. Despite increasing wealth, countries such as the United Arab Emirates are unable to provide for and support the growing number of young people. By 2025, the number of young people living in developing countries will grow to 89 per cent, putting a huge burden on their economies and governments. To combat this, Jabeen et al. (2017) have looked at the potential for entrepreneurship to be used, encouraging young people to begin ventures and strike out on their own.
