John May, chief executive of Young Enterprise, noted that enterprising workers will be created if younger members of society are provided with the right skills.
He stated: "Ultimately, they will be the generation that will help drive our economic recovery, growing businesses, creating jobs and competing globally."
Young people also needed to possess entrepreneurial skills due to the fact that levels of youth unemployment are currently quite high in the UK, Mr May went on to say.
Earlier this month, the commentator also gave his backing to government plans to create a new Enterprise Champions Programme.
First-hand entrepreneurial experience will be gained by young people who are given the chance to get involved in this initiative, the expert added.
