Dear Friends,
It is with immense pleasure that CAAYE presents you with its firstperiodical newsleer. Through this publicaon, the Branding andCommunicaons team of CAAYE, currently led by Ms Nurul

the array of acvies that CAAYE and its stellar member organisa-ons in Bangladesh, Brunei, India, Malaysia, Maldives, Singapore,
Pakistan and Sri Lanka have undertaken in the Asian Region to cre-
ate a beer youth entrepreneurship ecosystem. We do hope thatyou fill find the sharing of these best pracces and key programmeinformaon useful.

Commonwealth Youth Ministers meeng(8CYMM) to Youth Ministries of all 35 Commonwealth countries in aendance at Port Mo-resby, Papua New Guinea and to the United Naons Secretary General’s Special Envoy for
. We also had an audience with the Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea at the Grandopening ceremonies where he showed keen interest in forming a CAAYE-like alliance for the
Pacific region. Similar interest was shown for Africa and the Caribbean regions by the Minis-ters from Samoa, Zambia and Namibia. The Youth Ministers collecvely applauded the con-strucve recommendaons made by CAAYE’s members in the communiqué aimed at improv-ing access to finance for young entrepreneurs and creang a mentorship culture and educa-on system that encourages youth entrepreneurship in the Region.
