United States Ambassador to Swaziland Lisa Peterson donated books to RSTP to boost capacity building for start-ups and innovators. She emphasised that investment in education, especially in science, technology and entrepreneurship skills will trigger creativity and job creation for the throngs of young people graduating every year. She reiterated His Majesty King Mswati III’s proclamation that RSTP will drive innovation which will position this country to be able to achieve the national development goals.
Acting Principal Secretary of the Ministry of Information Communication and Technology conveyed Government’s gratitude for the donation. He further thanked the US Government for providing support towards economic empowerment of Emaswati in areas that the Government of the Kingdom of Eswatini is unlikely to adequately cater for by herself. The Chief Executive Officer stated that the personal and business development tools contained in the books will cause start-ups to avoid mistakes committed by others in the past, reduce risks and create business opportunities
