The duties of government is to make enabling environment which is ideal for progress and better economy. More efforts towards an open or democratic society could be shown by the scenario While the ruling party is the in-charge of the entire government and the opposition has the majority stake on local government; A skills mix from the entire political spectrum could transform Zimbabwe.There is a gap in our political parties from slogan to action. Key participants in implementing development initiatives are the citizens . There are capable of producing and developing themselves in an environment which government / Local authorities creates for them if it is in an ease of doing business model.
Entrepreneur is someone who exercises initiative by organizing a venture to take benefit of an opportunity and, as the decision maker, decides what, how, and how much of a good or service will be produced.An entrepreneur supplies risk capital as a risk taker, and monitors and controls the business activities. The entrepreneur is usually a sole proprietor, a partner, or the one who owns the majority of shares in an incorporated venture.According to economist Joseph Alois Schumpeter (1883-1950), entrepreneurs are not necessarily motivated by profit but regard it as a standard for measuring achievement or success.

Each profile will focus on the personality as well as the story of how they achieved their success in their particular environment or field. The narrative will focus on the personal success stories of these self-starters in the context of the economic and political climate of their respective markets. Such profiling will give an unprecedented insight into these unique and successful Zimbabwean entrepreneurs as well as first-hand experiences of the realities of how to get things done.

The duties of government create accommodating environment which promotes the citizens to think out of the box. Lets take out measures which are creating barriers of progress of our emerging entrepreneurs. Remove customs duties in our borders which are causing our people to suffer as they pay all the money they have on customs duties and creates unscrupulous business ethics and government need to waiver the taxes tariff and they will be higher traffic of tax payers. To secure a business permit/license ,it takes ages to get and this promotes corruption as some loose patience and ending up bribing for fast-tracking the process.The way to grew our economy is to boost the morale of the entrepreneurship atmosphere in our country.
The duties of the government is to have political will that will create the enabling environment for citizens to thrive through innovation.
