BN Youth's Laboratory To Help Government Formulate Policies: Khairy

Saturday, February 20, 2010

The special laboratory to be set up to gather views from the young generation through the Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth platform will assist in the formulation of government policies which will be more acceptable to the younger group.

BN Youth head Khairy Jamaluddin said although the idea came from the meeting between the Umno Youth Exco and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Wednesday, it would be managed by the BN Youth as it involved all the young generation in the country.

"What the Prime Minister wants us to do is to create a mechanism, a laboratory to seek views that can be considered as suggestions to the government for the benefit of the young generation.

"The terminology used by the PM (prime minister) as is adopted by the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU), which is a laboratory for the six National Key Result Areas (NKRAs) ...But this is specifically for the Youth. We call it the Youth Laboratory, but it will be managed by the BN Youth together with Umno Youth," he told reporters.

He said this at the Chinese New year celebration hosted by the Sabah Swimming Association and the Sabah Umno Youth at the residence of the Association's secretary, David Ng, at Kg Tanaki, here Friday.

After leading a courtesy call on the Prime Minister by the Umno Youth Exco in Putrajaya, Khairy had said that the movement would hold meetings with the young generation to seek their views and ideas on current issues, as well as their aspirations with regard to government policies.

Earlier, Khairy, who is on a two-day working visit here, visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital to present gifts in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration.

He is scheduled to proceed to Keningau Friday night and attend a Chinese New Year function organised by the Tenom BN Youth at the Dewan Sri Antenom, Tenom Saturday morning, before returning to Kuala Lumpur in the afternoon.
