Young Enterprise Central Region Annual Sales Fair 2017

On 5th August 2017, Junior Achievement Malaysia Berhad (JA Malaysia) officially launched its organization. This was a great milestone for this organization which runs various financial literacy and business program around the country for young people. One of their flagship programs is the Young Enterprise Program (YE) where students together with their corporate sponsors work together to form student companies for a nine-month period.

On the same day as the launch, was also the YE Annual Sales Fair held at Sunway Putra Mall. This is where students come together to sell the products that they have come up with to members of the public. Kuddos to the students as this year we had seen an increase in the innovation and creativity of the products being sold. Dato’ P.Kamalanathan, Deputy Education Minister and Her Excellency Kamala Shirin Lakhdhir, U.S. Ambassador to Malaysia, who were there for the JA Malaysia launch also visited all the sales booths to the excitement of the students.

All the credit goes to the teachers and corporate sponsors who worked tirelessly to ensure that the event took place smoothly and to offer assistance to the students. It was yet another day of enjoyment and fun for all who attended, especially for JA Malaysia who are now officially part of JA Worldwide. We hope to hear from the students soon as they liquidate their companies and report their earnings, where the top performing teams will be awarded at the YE Annual Showcase in the coming months.
