The first meeting of the work committee to ratify the Myanmar Youth Policy was held in Mingala Thiri Hotel, Nay Pyi Taw yesterday, with an opening speech by Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Dr. Win Myat Aye.

It was attended by members of the committee, officials and representatives of departments of Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement and related organisations.

The Union Minister said the Myanmar Youth Policy has been drafted for youths who will form the country’s future to realise their valuable potential, show their ability, and obey and follow ethics. The Union Minister added that the drafting of the Myanmar Youth Policy was started on 9 May 2016 and is planned to be completed by June this year.
The formulation of a Myanmar Youth Policy for today’s youth is one of the government’s 100 days projects. The Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement, Ministry of Health and Sports and Ministry of Education cooperated to lead youth representatives and formed the Youth Policy Drafting Committee and Youth Policy Drafting Work Committee.

This meeting is held for each ministry to discuss and suggest by sectors in the completed draft guidelines to be used in coordination with current policies, work processes and programmes. The Union Minister urged members of the committee to ensure that the Youth Policy encompasses all youths, be realistic and be effectively implementable.
