Transformasi Nasional 2050

TN50, or Transaformasi Nasional 2050, is a national development initiative spanning the years 2020 to 2050 which seeks to transform the country’s economy, environment, citizen well-being, technology, social interaction, governance and public administration. This initiative will be driven by clear 30-year goals and targets, which are being developed via a consultative process in the preparatory phase from 2017 to 2019.

YCM is proud and hounoured to be part of this preparatory phase via TN50x, a series of youth-centered dialogues to gather aspirations for TN50, by focusing on three main themes most relevant to our member base of young working professionals: the economy, workforce, and education.
