RIYADH: Sweden tops the Global Youth Index, released on Wednesday at the Misk Global Forum, along with research showing how prepared young people are for the future economy. The index was developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit and supported by the Misk Foundation to assess youth development.

The Global Youth Index analyzes the extent to which young people in 25 countries are prepared for the future in five domains: Education and skills, employment, entrepreneurship, global citizenship and the knowledge economy ecosystem. Collectively, the countries comprise 70 percent of the worlds youth population and 80 per cent of global GDP.

The new research published by Misk Foundation shows that while young people around the world are optimistic about the future, they are concerned about a lack of suitable education and on-the-job training. About 45 percent of those wanting to start their own venture have not done so because they do not have support.
