KUALA LUMPUR, March 9 (Bernama) — Youths will have a chance to interact directly with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at the Youth Empowerment Forum 2023 (YEF2023) to be held here on March 18 and 19.
YEF2023 organising chairman Ruzaini Hamzah said at the forum, Cabinet ministers, leaders and industry players will share their plans in the mission to empower youths and the Malaysia MADANI movement.
“Apart from giving the prime minister and other government representatives an opportunity to share their plans, YEF2023 is also a platform for youths to give their views, thus paving the way for a holistic approach in rebuilding the country with youths as the driver of this reform,” he said in a statement today.
The prime minister will appear in the special segment ‘Meet Anwar at YEF 2023’ on the second day of the event, while Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil, Human Resources Minister V. Sivakumar and former youth and sports minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman will also participate in the forum.
The forum will also feature youth leader Kamil Munim, who is political secretary to the Finance Minister, and corporate figures like Rinani Group executive director Noor Azri Noor Azerai and Aerodyne Group chief executive officer and founder Kamarul A. Muhamed.
Apart from picking the brains of subject matter experts, youths will also have a chance to interact directly with prospective employers and government agencies at YEF2023.
Among the topics lined up for discussions are ‘Gig Economy and Freelancing – A Whole New Future of Work’, ‘Breaking Stigmas – Cultivating TVET Talents with the rise of IR 4.0’, and ‘Empowering Youths Through Entrepreneurship and Social Entreprises’.
YEF2023 is presented by Minds 4 Malaysia, with Yayasan Go Strong Malaysia as the main organiser. Yayasan Go Strong Malaysia has already implemented various youth development programmes, especially for youths in the B40 group.
YEF2023, which will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, is open to youths, students of higher learning centres, colleges or those who have completed schooling, graduates and people who just entered the workforce.
Themed ‘Charting the Future’, YEF2023 is a sequel to the Minds for Malaysia (M4M) 2021 online conference aimed at shaping a visionary career mindset among the young generation.
