More Skilled Youth for Malaysia
Sunway signs MoU with Ministry of Youth and Sports
Sunway Berhad has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Youth and Sports to strengthen its commitment in supporting the nation’s agenda to accelerate human capital development. This socio economic Public-Private Partnership is in line with the Institut Kemahiran Belia Negara (IKBN) Transformation programme to increase the employability of its students. Following the MoU, 90 students from IKBN are expected to join Sunway Group.
Public-private partnership is one of the most effective tools to strengthen both parties in paving more opportunities for the Malaysian people. YB Mr. Khairy Jamaluddin, Minister of Youth and Sports said, “One of the drivers of change in the 11th Malaysia Plan is the industry-led Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET). It also shows that the Malaysian government gave special emphasis on the TVET Sector, which is driven by the market and knows intimately the job market skills if not the industry itself”.
Sunway Group Founder and Chairman Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah who signed the memorandum on behalf of Sunway said that the Group has always been a strong proponent of progressing youth.
