New Straits Times - - News / Nation -

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak yes­ter­day launched Cir­cles of the Fu­ture (Kumpu­lan Masa Depan), a spe­cial group for the Na­tional Trans­for­ma­tion 2050 (TN50).

Na­jib said the group was vi­tal to an­a­lyse and re­fine youth as­pi­ra­tions voiced dur­ing TN50 di­a­logue ses­sions.

Cir­cles of the Fu­ture con­sists of five groups.

Each group rep­re­sents one of the five main themes — Gov­er­nance, Work and Value Creation, Liv­ing and Well­be­ing, Life­style, and So­ci­ety.

Each group con­sists of 20 to 30 cir­cle mem­bers of var­i­ous back­grounds from the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors.

Na­jib said this was the first time the bot­tom-up ap­proach and em­pha­sis on the grass­roots were ap­plied in the for­mu­la­tion of the na­tion’s long term plans.

He said since the TN50 di­a­logue ses­sions were launched on Jan 19, more than 1.2 mil­lion youth had con­trib­uted some 33,000 as­pi­ra­tions.

“To­day’s youths are the heirs and main ac­tors of the fu­ture de­vel­op­ment of the na­tion.

“Those in their 20s and 30s will be Malaysia’s pi­o­neers and lead­ers in the com­ing decades.

“As such, in chart­ing the fu­ture of the na­tion, we must lis­ten and un­der­stand their as­pi­ra­tions
