KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 – The the maximum age for ‘youth’ may be reduced from the 40 years presently to 25 or 30 years, the Dewan Rakyat heard Wednesday. Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said this was among the ministry’s efforts to update the National Youth Policy (NYP) to empower youths at the grassroots level. “Established in 1997, NYP continues to be updated. As such, the definition of ‘youth’, presently at 40 years, may be reduced to 25 or 30 years,” he said replying to a question from Manivanan Gowindasamy (PKR-Kapar) in parliament, here today.

Manivanan wanted to know on the development and current status of NYP. Under NYP, ‘youth’ refers to those between the age of 15 years and 40 years. Khairy said the ministry was finetuning the NYP draft to make it more comprehensive and meets the needs of youths in line with the transformation taking place. Finetuning would involve strengthening the concept and framework to support government policies, gather and analyse the youth policies of other countries. “The finetuning process will be done in four phases, namely coordination, preparation of concept and framework, filling the input and approval.” The NYP finetuning proposal was expected to be tabled at the Youth Development Cabinet Committee meeting in November before tabled at the Cabinet meeting.
