SIBU: The envisioned National Youth Blueprint 2020 is laudable as it reflects the seriousness of the Ministry of Youths and Sports in enhancing the role, contribution and potential of youths.
In saying this, Assistant Minister of Youth Development Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah yesterday assured of full cooperation and support to realise the vision.
Abdul Karim, who is Asajaya assemblyman was asked to comment on the Bernama report stating the Ministry of
Youths and Sports was in the process of implementing the blueprint.
Its minister Khairy Jamaludin reportedly said in the parliament that it would give special focus and emphasis to young people in all aspects from education, self-development, identification of trends and values, their issues to the government delivery system.
“On the local scene, state government and Ministry of Social Development (KPS) will work alongside the federal ministry and their agencies to make sure the youth agenda as envisioned by Khairy becomes a reality.
“We will see how the federal programmes can be done to suit our local scene as not all programmes in Semenanjung might be suited for Sarawak.
“In general, we are supportive of Khairy’s vision and will fully give cooperation to make it a reality,” Abdul Karim told The Borneo Post.
He is happy that Khairy and his ministry are serious in implementing programmes to enhance the role, contribution and potential of youth.
