KUALA LUMPUR: The first step to a new vision begins today – with a town hall meeting involving 500 young Malaysians who will outline their view of Malaysia’s roadmap for the next 33 years.

At the event in Universiti Malaya, the young Malaysians from a cross section of society will express what they want the country to look like in the year 2050, three decades after the end of the Vision 2020 policy.

Their voices and those of 1.5 million other youths will be sought by the Government to draft the 2050 National Transformation (TN50) policy document, in one of the country’s biggest policy formulation exercises to date.

The TN50 policy document will outline the economic, social, cul-tural and environmental targets Malaysia aims to achieve by 2050.

“TN50 will seek to transform the country’s economy, citizen well-being, environment, technology, social interaction, governance and public administration,” said the Youth and Sports Ministry, which has been tasked with managing the conversation with the country’s younger generation via face-to-face and online sessions.

Details on the TN50 rollout provided by the ministry outline a busy calendar of events this year under what it calls the “TN50 Conver­sations” – a process to discover the subjects and aspirations that matter to youth and other Malaysians. Read more
