9 August 2021 – Progresif is proud to play our part as the strategic partner for the 16th Hari Belia celebration. Through our investment in promoting digital technology, entrepreneurship, arts and culture, creative industry, volunteerism and thought leadership, we are ready to bring His Majesty’s vision of Future Ready Youth or “Belia Siaga Masa Depan” to fruition.
Part of the strategic partnership, Progresif is co-sponsoring two promotional videos (3 mins and a 30 second video) for the 16th National Youth Day celebration this year. Progresif hope to encourage the nation’s youth to be more accepting of the opportunities available especially in the creative industry, digital technology, and entrepreneurship through e-commerce as the way forward for industrial revolution 4.0 and to overcome the challenges especially in this new norm.
“The readiness of Brunei’s youth to face the challenges of the future, will now depends on our ability to expose them to the opportunities of today.” Commented Hajah Nurul Haniah binti Haji Jaafar, Chief Executive Officer of Progresif.
Progresif is also the first organization to be part of the volunteerism app “mengelinga” that was launched during the National Youth Day celebration. Through this app Progresif will set up volunteering programmes where public can register in. When public volunteer to these programmes, a percentage of their time will be going to causes Progresif dearly supports such as environments, entrepreneurship, education, arts, and culture.
She also added “Although unforeseen circumstances brought the 16th Hari Belia celebrations to an early close, we and our youth should not be complacent as this shows that our challenges will not wait until we are ready to face them, but we will have to overcome them in any way possible.”
