The National Transformation 2050 (TN50) which has received an overwhelming response so far, will go on a nationwide roadshow starting Friday, said Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

According to Bernama, Khairy said the TN50 roadshow was initiated to listen to the views and suggestions of youths in each state, starting from Sabah’s Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) on Friday and followed by Terengganu on Feb 27 at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Dungun.

“This will be followed by Johor on March 3, Perak (March 8), Sarawak (March 11) and all other states on dates to be decided later. The dialogues during the TN50 series tour are open to all youths,” he told a press conference on the TN50 at Youth and Sports Ministry in Putrajaya yesterday February 21.

Khairy also assured that he would listen to suggestions from youths in every state during the dialogue sessions held throughout the TN50 roadshow.

TN50 launched on Jan 19, was envisioned by Prime Minister Najib Razak to map the direction of the nation for the next three decades after 2020.

So far, TN50 dialogues which have been held were the Premier Dialogue with the prime minister at the TN50 launch last month, Youth and Sports Minister TN50 Dialogue with youth and non-governmental organisations, and the TN50 Premier Dialogue from the Islamic perspective with Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi on February 20.

Khairy said so far the dialogues were well-received by youth groups.

Besides participating in the dialogues, youths also gave positive feedback about TN50 online, he said.

He said TN50 had outlined seven areas which have been identified as the aspiration of the younger generation namely values, governance, environment, education, employment, lifestyle and putting Malaysia on the global stage.
