Kuala Lumpur, (UNA-OIC) – The Malaysian government will step up efforts to help youth succeed in education under Budget 2021, said Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz.
The minister stated that the youth are the main contributor to the nation’s development agenda, noting they have been at the forefront in helping communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking at an interview on Sunday, he said the government is aware that youth need support in terms of a good public education system and an economy that gives them the opportunity to be independent and succeed.
“Opportunities should be provided for all, whether they have academic or vocational qualifications. All this will be finetuned during the preparation of Budget 2021.
“I would like to invite all the people, including youth, to share their ideas and proposals for consideration for Budget 2021,” he explained.
The interview entitled ‘Youth: Economy & the Country’s Future’ was produced by the ministry with the cooperation of Bernama TV.
