We, 20 youths representing nearly 220 million ASEAN youth, would like to take this opportunity to express our profound gratitude to ASEAN Leaders for allowing us to speak out the voice of ASEAN youth.

We are delighted to see the time and efforts of ASEAN leaders have put into nourishment and development of young people in the recent years. They have enabled young people to involve more deeply in activities, to be a part of cooperation mechanisms, dialogues and policy making processes in the ASEAN region, in terms of both quantity and quality, giving young people the opportunity to speak out, be equipped with the skills to develop and unleash their talents in several platforms that connect young people with ASEAN community development.
