Our representative to the 11th Edition of the Young Diplomats Forum (YDF) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, was honoured to be the first representative from Fiji to attend the forum.

Broderick Mervyn attended the forum from September 3 to September 7.

It was an intensive week-long programme of practical sessions, workshops, policy exercises and institutional visits organised and delivered by world leading experts.

The forum was attended by over 100 young diplomats from over 75 countries covering every region in the world to tackle hot topics of international affairs, a platform for dialogue and constructive engagement that focuses on burning issues relating specifically to the modern world that we live in today.

The proceedings and workshops of the forum engage young diplomats with Ambassadors, MPs, MEPs, Government officials, Media and Diplomacy experts on different issues of global affairs.

In addition, the Young Diplomats Forum is a cultural and entertaining experience that create international friendship amongst participants and engages with institutions in the host country.

Despite the difference in culture, language and opinion the Young Diplomats all joined together in building relationships and living this unforgettable experience.

Mr Mervyn said: “I am proud to be recognised by this forum, a youth-led organisation whose ideas, insights and feedback are of value.

“I look forward to a more robust presence of dynamic Fijian Youth Leaders at the next YDF.”

He acknowledged the Ministry of Youth and Sports and Jeffery Lin for their contributions towards Mr Mervyn’s preparation for the trip and he wishes to thank his family and friends for their endless support.

“Youths have shown they are passionate about the future of work and gender equality, as seen in our strong voter turnout in the past Fijian Election.

“Youths are eager to make a difference and to be able to address important issues with a focus on sustainable and inclusive growth for the future.”
