There is currently a consensus in an international context on the importance to the economy of the active participation of entrepreneurship throughout the business and working world. This is largely a factor related to modernization and economic and social cohesion. The active participation of entrepreneurs in the working world is increasingly apparent with the consolidation of their presence in business at every level, and with the development of economic spaces where entrepreneurial groups can express their potential and creativity. This has obliged policy-makers within the global economy to consider entrepreneurship as a determining variable in any political force, not only for bodies and groups created specifically to this end, but also fo any decision-making body. Specific actions promoting entrepreneurship have already been established around the world.
