The rationale for the promulgation of this Act is as follows: the National Youth Promotion and Coordination Act of 1978 has been in force for a long time. It is deemed appropriate to define procedures and amend methods in promoting the development of child and youth to better
correspond with the present situation through the establishment of district child and youth centers and child and youth councils to improve efforts in child and youth development. It is deemed appropriate to encourage participation of private organizations and local administrative organizations in child and youth development. It is therefore deemed necessary to promulgate this Act.
