Malaysia's Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (Kementerian Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi, or MOSTI) is aiming to open up 4,700 job opportunities for Malaysians. This target was revealed by Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation Dr Adham Baba during his visit to the “Ruang Reka” community programme at Taman Rasa Sayang, Paroi, Bernama reported.
To that end, the Minister shared that MOSTI is "welcoming" the implementation of various programmes and initiatives led by the National Job Creation Strategic Plan—which was announced by Prime Minister Ismail Sabri on 22 September 2021—to empower the Malaysian workforce to be more resilient, highly skilled, and internationally renowned.
"So, the target of creating 4,700 job opportunities through the initiative will be achieved before end of this year," Minister Adham said, per Bernama's report.
He added that as a permanent member of the National Employment Council, MOSTI is focused on the ‘deep-tech’ and ‘future skills’ clusters which are key in driving the growth of new and modern sectors, and accelerating the adoption of AI automation and drones.
