This is the report of the second Meeting of Young Commonwealth Leaders, which was held in Colombo, 3-8 May 1979. Young Ministers, parliamentarians, Government officials, trade unionists, and community leaders discussed the extent of youth employment and the major impediment this caused on the road to national development. They recognised the overbearing constraints imposed on national development by the present international economic order.



As well as the opening remarks and speeches from the Meeting, this publication also includes the Ministers’ Final Statement on desirable Commonwealth measures against youth unemployment and their call for reform in present international economic conditions.

Youth Unemployment and Underdevelopment

The first meeting of young Commonwealth Leaders held in 1977 in Ocho Rios demonstrated that this gathering has the potential to strengthen the ideals of the Commonwealth by providing a forum for discussion among young people which can result in practical proposals for the solution of common problems and so make the Commonwealth more relevant to the lives of the ordinary citizens whose nations comprise this voluntary association of independent states.
