As it is the end of the year, many surveys have been done in the duration of 2020 and the findings are out now.

The second edition of REDHILL’s ASEAN Youth Survey analyses the roles of Southeast Asia’s youth as key drivers of economic, cultural, social and political change. The study attempts to take a snapshot view of the youth’s aspirations and concerns on governance, the economy, education, life choices and media consumption – all through the lens of more than 2,000 youths aged 18-35 across 8 ASEAN member nations.

One of their main findings in this study was that 72% of the Malaysian youths felt that the government has handled the health response to the pandemic very well. However, in terms of economic response, only 27% of the Malaysian youths felt like the governments handled it well. The same can be said for the social response as only 25% of the Malaysian participants felt like the government handled that aspect well.

In relation to that, only 16% of the Malaysian youths are concerned about the current state of the national economy. 39% of the Malaysian participants believe that the economy of the nation will improve in 2021 while 33% believe that it will remain the same. Lastly, 27% believe that it will get worse.

Jacob Puthenparambil, CEO of REDHILL said,

“Malaysian youths experienced some of the most challenging periods of their lives during 2020. Understandably, many of them are now concerned about their situation as the nation is still reeling from the COVID-19 crisis.”

“However, their positive outlook towards the future national economy means that the shorter-term governance and economical challenges – large as they may be – can still be overcome.”
