    Presented by Justin N. Seruhere

    Minister Plenipotentiary at the Permanent Mission of the United Republic of Tanzania to the United Nations

    In this talk, Justin N. Seruhere will discuss the central role of entrepreneurship in the attainment and sustainability of the MDGs in Sub-Saharan Africa, paying attention particularly to the case of Tanzania. He will focus on MDG 1 (the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger) and MDG 8 (the development of a global partnership for development). Drawing on the experience of Tanzania, he will argue that entrepreneurship can provide a new impetus and orientation for initiatives in pursuit of these development goals.
