YOUTHS will have an opportunity to get up close and personal with Treasury secretary-general Tan Sri Dr Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah and find out what is in store for the Malaysian economy in the next five years during a coffee session in the Education Faculty auditorium in University Malaya, Petaling Jaya, from 2pm to 5pm on Nov 28.
The talk, which is free of charge, is titled “Future of the Ringgit and Economic Opportunities in the Next Five Years” and is aimed at giving youths an insight into what is expected by 2020.
It is organised by the Malaysian Indian Network of Entrepreneurs Association (1MINE).
“Our country is struggling to reach stability in the economic sector. With the fall of the ringgit recently, Malaysia’s economy looks gloomy and many are feeling the pain, including entrepreneurs,” said 1MINE president Datuk S. Gopinath.
“Entrepreneurship is one of the vehicles to upgrade and improve our economic status, thus the reason to empower youth through entrepreneurship,” he said.
Gopinath hopes the talk will reach out to the hearts and minds of upcoming entrepreneurs in a personal, relaxed, yet inspiring manner, driving home the message that a strong and successful person will always be ready to assist if there is a desire to learn.
1MINE, a non-political NGO launched in 2011 by the Prime Minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, is aimed at uniting entrepreneurs through networking and nurturing young entrepreneurs, including university students, and educating and enhancing entrepreneurs with skills and knowledge.
1MINE is also organising coffee talk sessions with Eversendai Corp Bhd managing director Tan Sri A.K. Nathan, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak soon.
