"It means being empowered to influence the future of our own nation for the well-being of our people.” "It means being the masters of our own destiny and being responsible for charting and driving our progress, for the benefit of current and future Malaysians, ” he said. Sultan Nazrin urged all Malaysians to foster a culture of knowledge-building and sharing, and to participate actively in the country’s development. “I hope that young Malaysians will continue to hunger for knowledge and service, regardless of the field or pursuit, ” he said, adding that the mastery and application of knowledge through research was a great enabler.
