This one day workshop was launched by Deputy Minister of Education II, YB Senator Datuk Chong Sin Woon. The Council received support from many agencies especially agencies that are familiar within the financial sector such as EPF, FiMM, and AKPK and for the programme to cover key fundamentals of financial planning and to help youths to use financial planning knowledge towards their advantage. Besides, others NGO’s like Majlis Belia Malaysia also committed to ensure the success of this program by inviting all the youths in Negeri Sembilan in order to join this literacy programme.

The core objective of this programme is on creating awareness to youths on prudent personal finance, improve youth’s knowledge about planning aspects of personal finance and allows youths to master skills using personal finance management methods to have a better future.

YB Senator Datuk Chong Sin Woon, Deputy Minister of Education II, said ‘To promote more financial literacy among youths, the Malaysian government through the Ministry of Education is pleased that such a programme is being organised at no cost for participants’. He commended, MFPC for successfully organising this seminar and the various stakeholders for coming together to organise this programme.

Providing financial education to adults is not enough to ensure a financially literate Malaysia. To enable financial education to reach the masses, the subject must be integrated to our youth and children. Financial education should play an important role around the community in order to educate youths well’.
