In the afternoon the participants of the Young Executive Cohorts Programme held a dialogue session with Yang Berhormat Awang Iswandy bin Ahmad, Member of the Legislative Council. Among matters highlighted during the dialogue was the responsibility of all parties towards animals, including pets, strays and abandoned animals.
The session also touched on society's awareness in protecting animals, especially abandoned ones which is still low. This is caused by a number of factors including lifestyle and busy daily activities. It is hoped such a dialogue would educate the public and raise awareness particularly among the youths in handling and addressing the issue of strays or abandoned animals.
