The United Nations on Friday approved an Israel-initiated resolution in which the international body affirmed for the first time that entrepreneurship was a critical development tool.

The UN Second Committee adopted the “Entrepreneurship for Development” resolution by a 129-31 vote.

In response to the vote, Israeli Ambassador to the UN in New York Ron Prosor said the committee had sent “a clear and simple message: Entrepreneurship is a primary pathway to sustainable economic growth for all.”
