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.

Meanwhile, Mr. Michael Kok Fook On, said ‘Financial education must start at an early age and preferably before youths go off to work in the real world. Providing financial education to adults is not enough to ensure a financially literate Malaysia.

Financial education should play an important role around the community in order to educate youths well’.

This financial literacy programme was made possible through the financial support of the Capital Market Development Fund (CMDF).
