HIS Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam yesterday attended the 11th National Youth Day celebration held at the International Convention Centre, Berakas.

His Majesty, who was accompanied by His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office; and His Royal Highness Prince ‘Abdul Malik, was greeted on arrival by the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, Pehin Datu Lailaraja Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Haji Awang Halbi bin Haji Mohd Yussof.

The theme of the annual event is ‘Visionary Youth: Catalyst for Transformation’.

In his opening speech, Pehin Datu Lailaraja Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Haji Awang Halbi said His Majesty’s presence was reminder to the country’s youth of the important role they play in society by making a meaningful contribution to social development, as well as the progress of the nation and religion in order to face challenges in the era of globalisation.

The minister said the theme was chosen to take into account the importance for youths to prepare themselves to be educated, skilled and successful citizens who can contribute towards creating a society that is of quality, as well as in generating a dynamic and resilient economy under the objectives of the National Vision 2035.

“Transformation is a must to achieve a developed country,” he said.

The youths and youth organisations who have made the country proud through their services to the nation were awarded under four categories – Excellent Youth Award, Voluntary Youth Award, Youth Leader Award, and Youth Association Award.

The recipient of the Excellent Youth Award went to Siti Huzzaimah Yadey binti Haji Rosli, Chairwoman of the Kampung Junjungan Women’s Association; while the Voluntary Youth Award went to Nurizzatul Izzah binti Haji Abdul Rahman from the Society of Human Development (KESAN); the Youth Leader Award then went to Awang Mohammad Anwar bin Awang Haji Mohammad from the Society for Community Outreach and Training (SCOT); and the Youth Association Award went to SCOT’s Green Exchange Project from SCOT.

All the recipients received a trophy, Kain Tenunan (Woven Fabric), certificate of presentation and $300 cash.

The award was presented to show recognition and appreciation to the youth movement in Brunei Darussalam for responding to His Majesty’s titah to support the youth in upholding the spirit of volunteerism.

The minister’s opening speech was followed by a titah from His Majesty, and the recitation of the Youth Pledge led by Dr Mohd Ezam bin Emran, a cardiologist, along with a group of youths from various backgrounds.

The celebration also featured a video produced by the Creative Youth Group led by Haji Mohammad Sukoran bin Haji Ismail that showed the achievements of youths in different fields in order to inspire other youths to continue to pursue their goals.

The monarch later toured the Youth Entrepreneur Innovation Showcase 2016 and received a pesambah from the National Youth Day Celebration Executive Committee 2016.

Pehin Datu Lailaraja Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Haji Awang Halbi said the celebration brought together almost 1,000 youths who have answered His Majesty’s call to utilise His Majesty’s government’s youth development programmes and projects.

Another aim of the celebration is to gather youths from across the country to participate in activities that are meaningful and provide an opportunity for them to exchange views, especially on the development and progress of youths.
