The NST Insight Forum is one of the initiatives under the NST Insight programme which was created as an extension to NST’s newsroom’s live journalism that focuses on discussion concerning current policy matters and topical issues. 

This programme is also part of NST’s efforts to encourage more policy discussion in an open forum that could contribute to a more matured and informed discourse in the spirit of #NewMalaysia that celebrates different opinions and perspectives on various topics.

As one of the nation’s oldest media houses, the NST is playing its part to be a reliable source of information to the public and a platform where policies and topics of public concerns could be discussed in a critical manner. 

The NST Insight Forum serves as a direct means of dialogue. Such a forum will provide the people with an open opportunity to hear and question the related issues directly from the policy makers themselves. 

The inaugural NST Insight Forum was held on 28 April 2019, with Deputy Minister of Defence YB Liew Chin Tong and Member of Parliament for Rembau YB Khairy Jamaluddin sharing the stage to talk about the country’s economy. 

The first forum, which was oversubscribed, was also streamed live via NST media channels such as Facebook, YouTube and website.
