Malaysia-2021-04-17-IAED Inaugurated in Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia—UPF-Malaysia hosted its second Peace Talks webinar in conjunction with the launch of the International Association for Peace and Economic Development (IAED) in Malaysia, on April 17, 2021. The online seminar, whose theme was “COVID-19: Preparing Your Business for the Post Pandemic World and Forging a Sustainable Future,” was attended by over 200 participants from 10 nations through Zoom and Facebook Live.

Mr. Thomas McDevitt, chairman of The Washington Times and global coordinator of the IAED, delivered the keynote remarks and officially launched the IAED-Malaysia. Mr. Masatate Kajikuri, the regional coordinator of IAED-Asia Pacific, delivered special remarks.

This was followed by a panel session where speakers shared their experiences and knowledge in navigating challenges in the post-pandemic world and giving back to society. The webinar also encouraged all the participants to be agents for change in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2: zero hunger; 4: quality education; and 8: decent work and economic growth. Several NGOs and charitable organizations have been identified and were publicized through the IAED call to action project, #IAED (I am Engaging and Driven!).
