1.  Background

The Hitachi Young Leaders Initiative (HYLI) reflects Hitachi’s long-term commitment to Asia. Established in 1996, HYLI is a regional thought leadership and social responsibility program organized by Hitachi, with the aim of helping Asia identify its future leaders by providing a platform for bright university students. At the initiative, four of the best and brightest university students from each participating country meet to discuss current regional and global issues. They also exchange views with prominent speakers who are the Asian leaders of today, representing governments, business and academia.  

Originally starting with six countries - Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Japan - the resounding success of the program encouraged Hitachi to expand the initiative to include Vietnam beginning the 8thHYLI (2007) and Myanmar beginning 13th HYLI (2015).

Key objectives of HYLI are: 

•       Further develop the student participants’ perception and understanding of regional and global issues that impact society.
