President Obama Engages With Southeast Asian Youth at YSEALI Town Hall in Kuala Lumpur

On April 27, President Obama hosted a town hall to launch the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) at Malaya University in Kuala Lumpur with over 500 young Southeast Asian leaders from all ten member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).  In his remarks, President Obama urged ASEAN students and young professionals to be “part of the solution” by staying connected with one another.  Underscoring the U.S. government’s commitment to youth he said, “Today I am proud that we’re launching a new Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative to increase and enhance America’s engagement with young people across the region.  You’re part of this new effort.  You’re the next generation of leaders - in government, in civil society, in business and the arts.”  He noted that in the next few months, the United States is going to listen to young people across Southeast Asia about their ideas and the partnerships we can build together to empower their efforts, develop new exchanges, and connect young Southeast Asian leaders with young Americans.
