“Yes, and I think younger people are the backbone of any economy. Sometimes we look at larger economies where the young people are driving the economy in terms of consumer spending, economies of scale, and value-adding.”

Ghandi says that young individuals are the driving force of many economies, including that of Fiji.

The Chair of SPX adds that currently there is not a very high level of traction among younger investors, but there is increasing interest from many.
