KUALA LUMPUR – The MCA Youth movement must also be involved in holding dialogues with the younger generation nationwide to furnish a more indepth input on the National Transformation 2050 (TN50).
MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said TN50 would become an important topic for MCA Youth to focus on in the next two to three years.
“I have given them a suggestion to immediately hold dialogues on TN50 concerning what we want to see in 30 years, where we are heading, targets, and what is the aim of the national struggle by 2050
He was talking to reporters after opening the 47th Selangor MCA Youth movement annual general meeting here today.
MCA fully supports the proposal to hold TN50 which was proposed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak during the tabling of the 2017 Budget on Friday, said Liow, stressing that it is a good concept and an important initiative for the future of the nation.
During the tabling, Najib said the government would mobilise a series of national discourses towards moulding the National Transformation which would subsequently be rebranded as TN50, and the agenda would encompass a three-decade process and activity to map the national direction on a fresh canvas.
On MCA’s annual general meeting scheduled for November, Liow said he would propose changes to allow delegates from the divisional level to directly vote the party’s national leadership, compared to the current system whereby only central delegates are allowed to vote.
Meanwhile, Liow stated his support to the agenda of the Selangor MCA Youth movement to set up an MCA supporters club (create MCA affiliate membership) to boost the support of youths of numerous races towards the party.
He said the setting up of the supporters club would reflect the movement as a wing and front line of the party which could interact with youths of numerous races in supporting the party struggle to develop all races in the country.
Meanwhile, in BENTONG, MCA members were urged to utilise the social media in the effort to explain all issues involving the Chinese community which were often used by DAP as propagandas to smear the government.
Liow said they had the capability to effectively ward off all the wild allegations of the opposition via multimedia technology and cyber space which were easily accessible via smart phones.
“I urge MCA members to explain in detail all issues being faced by the Chinese community which have not been solved, as the DAP will use them merely to get support,” he said after launching the Pahang MCA annual conference here today. – BERNAMA
