Webinar on the State's Industrialisation
A Solution to Migration and Youth Unemployment in Sabah
Industrialisation had hardly made significant progress in Sabah. The manufacturing or industrial contribution to the state’s GDP had remained low over the years. On the other hand, industrialisation in other areas of Malaysia has caused migration of Sabah’s youths to those areas. This is the main reason for the lack of job creation in Sabah which resulted in unemployment of youths. The continued migration of youths to Peninsular Malaysia and other countries gives a strong reason for Sabah to quickly move towards industrialisation.

Seminar on Gender and Literacy in Sabah
Eliminating the Gap
This seminar aimed to tackle Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 which seeks to provide quality education, SDG 5 that promotes gender equality, and SDG 10 which purports to reduce inequalities. It is a widely known fact that disparity in gender is largely due to lack of access to education which ultimately affects levels of literacy. Even though in Malaysia, youth literacy as well as adult literacy has significantly improved over the years, there are still concerns on literacy in legal, social and cultural issues.
