Event description
The Perdana Fellows Alumni Association (PFAA) presents its fourth installment of the Youth Economic Forum (YEF) 2019.

About this Event

YEF 2019 aims to provide and promote new perspectives and insights on the state of the economy through constructive and fact-based discussions. The forum provides a platform for young professionals to seek innovative solutions, bridging the gap between government, industry and the public at large.

This year, the forum will host a diverse panel of distinguished speakers providing an insightful opportunity for young professionals to engage with thought leaders in the public policy area.

With the historic constitutional amendment to lower the voting age to 18, the youths are now at the center of Malaysia’s development narrative.

Concurrently, the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030 was announced with the vision that every Rakyat will enjoy the economic benefits and prosperity together in a fairer and more equitable manner.

With these developments in mind, the Youth Economic Forum 2019 brings forward a brand new theme, A Ripple Effect: Youths in the Driver’s Seat.

For our 4th YEF installment, the theme encapsulates the new direction Malaysia is about to take. Our hope is to advance and facilitate meaningful conversations through debates and the exchange of ideas, creating a ripple effect for change.

Here, youth and policymakers will convene as nation builders —looking back into our rich history, wrestling with ideas of how the country's prosperity should be created and distributed, and decide on how best to chart a path forward for our nation’s future. As the refrain goes, "nothing about us, without us", as we accept nothing short of the inclusion and representation of the youth's voice and ideas in policy making in youth related policies; to be talked to and with, and not just to be talked about.
