Delegate: Ms. Meerim Kydyralieva
12. Ms. Kydyralieva (Kyrgyzstan), speaking as a youth delegate, said that contemporary problems could not be resolved without the creative potential, energy and enthusiasm of the 1.8 billion young people worldwide. She welcomed the large number of national and global platforms on which young people were able to put forward their views and proposals. In Kyrgyzstan, where 30 per cent of the population were between 14 and 28 years of age, the Government paid close attention to youth issues, as shown by the fact that it had joined the United Nations youth delegate programme in 2016 and had convened the World Youth Kurultai (conference) in August 2016.
