YB Tuan Soon Lip Chee

“One has to adopt the approach of learning from other people across boundaries and differences in order to remain competitive. I believe this programme is one of the best initiatives to prepare a platform for information and knowledge exchange. This will also enhance the learning experience of our participants as this gives them exposure to learn from successful individuals and academicians which are a tough chance to come by”.

Dr Gwee Sai Ling
(General Manager of Penang Youth Development Corporation)

“Penang Youth Development Corporation believe this is the right way forward as we forge synergy by coming together to launch the International Youth Conference with the theme ‘Better mental health and well-being for youth.’ A platform to enhance interaction and engagement among the Youth in Malaysia and Youth from abroad as we seek to accelerate the learning curve of our Youth”.
