Invitation to Symposium on the 11th Malaysian Plan

Salam Perjuangan!

The Malaysian Left Coalition (MLC) is organising a two-day symposium on 11th Malaysian Plan. We are aware there has been a lot of incidents taking place in our country lately, especially the crackdown by the authorities on various groups of society.

While fighting the injustice, let us spare some time to look at the economic aspects of our live. The Government is expected to table the 11th Malaysian Plan at the Parliament Sitting in June 2015. The Plan, as other plans in the past, is going to have a greater impact on our live. We have witnessed that all these plans are based on neo-liberal policies which has benefitted a few and did not address the real need of the majority.

As such, the people’s centred symposium will be held to obtain views from civil society and the grassroots. The 2 day symposium will to look at various key issues including:

  • Addressing growing income disparity
  • Strengthening the safety net for ordinary Malaysians
  • Strategies to address persistent rural poverty
  • Strategies to address the marginalization of Youth from poor families
  • A responsible National Energy Policy given the reality of Global Warming
  • Safeguarding the environment for future generations
  • (Kindly refer to the attached tentative programme)

For your kind information the symposium will be held as follows:

Date: 11 & 12 April 2015 (Saturday & Sunday)
Time: 9.00 am to 4.30 pm
Venue: Auditorium Malaysiakini
Jalan 51/205A, Off Jalan Tandang, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
