Key themes continued
On Why” we need to move away from motivations purely on patriotism, personal connections, intellectual curiosity to one of self interest. The message should be there is lot of opportunity and money to be made back home.
On “How” we need strong home country institutions to coordinate diaspora networks as well as “Champions” within the diaspora communities in different sectors. We need to motivate this group of people to encourage broader particpation by diaspora networks
Government should proactively set up a ministry responsible for diaspora affairs with a budget to incentivize diaspora engagement both in terms of funding for conferences/networking events, maintaining an NRB database and even fiscal incentives for those who return.
