Title : 4 S'poreans to take part in Hitachi Young Leaders Initiative
Date : March 13, 2002

Four Singaporeans have been chosen to take part in the Hitachi Young Leaders Initiative, a forum that will focus on regional issues.

The four representatives are all undergraduates with diverse academic and personal backgrounds.

The forum in July will see 24 Asian youths debating issues, looking into how to cultivate entrepreneurial spirit, corporate social responsibility and the role of the media in Asia.

This year's conference theme is "Asia's roadmap in forging regional cohesion for global advancement."

Participants will also devote time to the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled.

Rita Zamzamah Mohd Nazeer, a participant, said: "The students have much to contribute...we have to listen to what they want to tell us. I think this initiative is a great opportunity for me to take back other's experiences and combine with mine."
