from the "Statement of Vision and Recommendation from the Youth of Asia" Singapore 27 November 1996
These main points were distilled from the 22-page report compiled after two days of discussion, and focused on the following recommendations:
Balancing the Demands of the Present with the Needs of the Future
Asian countries should work together to set standards and coordinate the development of tourism to ensure better ecological management, greater ease of travel and the preservation of the Asian heritage.
Government and industry should - through the construction of more facilities and through educational systems - provide more support for sports and arts.
Regional advances in science and technology should be encou-raged through more cooperative industrial research and development.
A pan-Asian media policy ought to be developed, presenting a self-enforced code of conduct that would encourage social responsibility among the media while reducing the need for for government interference.
