The Symposium offered a broad overview of Ruvuma's natural resources sector and encouraged youths to be creative in developing ideas how to responsibly use natural resources for personal, social and national progress. Hence, insights into the challenges and opportunities of the various sectors (e. g. agriculture or tourism) were given and subsequently, successful entrepreneurs from Ruvuma Region talked about their personal experiences. Additionally, the event served as a platform for students to share their experiences and expectations.
