Well, KL is not a Malaysian state now is it? It is a federal territory. If you're wondering about KL's Human Development index, its 0.861 . Nazrey provided a link to the UNDP site, its all there.

Foreign businesses operating in Malaysia are impressed with the detailed focus of the transformation programmes towards becoming a high-income economy but say human capital remains a sticky issue.

International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed said there was a general feeling that Malaysia must buck up in terms of implementation.

"Some of the frustrations they have faced on the ground centred on human development - foreign labour issues and obtaining talent for their respective sectors," Mustapa told journalists at a media briefing after a two-hour dialogue session with members of 34 foreign business councils and various commercial counsellors from embassies.

Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) chief executive officer Datuk Seri Idris Jala, who was also present, spoke about the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).

During the closed-door session, some of the foreign businessmen shared their frustrations in terms of varying efficiency levels of government agencies.

"They said the approval processes were not quick enough as in the case of work permits.

"We have taken on board all the recommendations and hope to make the improvements during the course of the year," assured Idris, who is also Minister in the Prime Minister's Department.

"We're encouraged by the enthusiasm (of the foreign business councils) which are genuinely keen to see Malaysia's transformation," Idris said.

On confusion faced by foreign investors in relation to the various organisations, Mustapa and Idris said the Malaysian Investment Development Agency (Mida) remains the first port of call for manufacturing and services.

"From there, if the investor is targeting Iskandar or other growth corridors or MDEC (Multimedia Development Corp), Mida will refer to them so that we don't trip over each other," Idris added.

He also said that issues will be resolved with the highest involvement of the Economic Council. Mustapa said there has been improved coordination within leaner agency structures now.

"In the past, there was a lack of coordination but now there is more sharing with once-a-fortnight meetings being held between us and Pemandu, so that we can address the weaknesses," he said.

Korean Chamber of Commerce chairman Datuk Lee Sang Bai, in describing the ETP as impressive, said he will be sharing the Malaysian transformation programme with his counterparts in Seoul.

South Korea has placed Malaysia on its high radar last year following the visit of its president , and Mustapa plans to make a strategic investment mission to the country soon, together with Idris.


Malaysia Australia Business Council chairman Michael Halpin said while it was still early days yet, business councils were aware of the mammoth task ahead of Malaysia in the transformation.

Earlier, Idris presented the long-term goals of ETP under the New Economic Model where he pointed out that the Government Transformation Programme had produced positive results in six of the National Key Result Areas within 12 months.

These deliverables included fighting corruption, reducing crime, reducing poverty, enhancing education, improving rural basis infrastructure and urban public transport.

THE State Government will start to implement its initial rolling plan programmes under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) slated for 2011 and 2012, according to Head of State Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.

Various specific programmes and development projects have been drawn up, he said when delivering the State Government’s policy speech at the opening of the 13th State Assembly sitting in Likas yesterday.

Juhar disclosed that all the planning for the programmes and projects were done after taking into consideration the state’s needs in term of development, future challenges, current economic and global trends.

“I therefore hope that the State Government will be able to ensure that all development programmes planned under the first rolling plan will be implemented effectively in the interest of the people.

“The Government must also take immediate steps to resolve all the problems contributing to the delay in the implementation process,” he stressed.

Juhar also reminded civil servants of their responsibility to rejuvenate and facilitate the private investments in the state.

He stressed that the Government must provide a more conducive situation in order to assist the private sector and drive the state’s economy.

Policies and investment procedures must therefore be very clear and simplified so that the process of starting business in Sabah is as smooth as possible, he said, adding that with globalisation comes challenges and stiffer competition, there is a need for all to raise their skills, effectiveness and productivity.

“Direct growth in the private sector will create more job opportunities and strengthen the Government’s financial resources thus boosting the state’s development,” he said.

In the context of a multi-racial nation, unity is the key to harmony and prosperity, Juhar said, adding that the state and country have successfully used this a source of strength.

“Therefore we must continue to build a community that is not only firm and harmonious but also has the willingness to compromise and accept the various traditions in the state and country,” he said.

According to Juhar, the State Government, in its efforts to go forward towards achieving its objectives under the 10MP, must focus on the five strategic halatuju for 2011.

These include making full use of the Government Transformation Programme, the Economic Transformation Programme, human capital development, promoting research and development (R&D) and commercialization, improving the quality of life as well as enhancing business friendliness in Sabah.

He stressed that to ensure Sabah becomes a developed state, various steps must be taken and urged all Sabahans to double their efforts as well as cooperation in order to achieve the goal.

Strategies to develop innovative human capital unveiled
Posted on April 26, 2011, Tuesday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=125983

PUTRAJAYA: A plan to promote the development of innovative human capital launched today aims to boost innovation in the country besides creating a more knowledgeable workforce.

The plan comprises 45 strategies, 112 action plans and 108 key performance indices (KPIs).

One of its main targets is to produce some 60,000 PhD holders by 2023.

“There’s an urgent need to develop innovative human capital in the country in hopes that they can come up with innovative products,” said Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin when launching the plan here yesterday.

He said the plan would focus on efforts to nurture ‘innovation literate’ graduates who were skilled in research methods and problem-solving, and had the potential to become entrepreneurs.

To further promote an innovation-based economy, Mohamed Khaled said the plan suggested that the government as well as government-linked companies craft a policy that encourage the purchase of products based on local research and innovation programmes.

The minister said the ministry would make available a RM1 million fund to promote innovation and commercialisation activities.

The MyBrain 15 programme outlined in the plan aims to produce, among others, 5,000 PhD holders under the MyPhD project, 40,000 Master’s degree holders under MyMaster and 500 PhD Industry holders, by 2015.

Mohamed Khaled said that 2,122 applications for the three schemes had been approved so far. — Bernama

Private technical institutes encouraged to invest in human capital development
Posted on April 28, 2011, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=126743

THE State Government should encourage more private institutions to open vocational and technical training centres, said Bongawan assemblyman Datuk Karim Bujang.

Suggesting this at the State Assembly sitting yesterday, Karim said this is to support the effort to create skilled human capital and competitive young entrepreneurs for developing the agriculture and agro-based industry in Sabah.

“With the encouragement of the State Government, Sabahan youths would have more opportunities created to gain knowledge in entrepreneurship and technical skills to participate in the development of this sector and in return to improve their economy.

“This is important towards achieving the government’s aspiration to create a vibrant economic development in Sabah, to eradicate poverty and enhance the State’s competitiveness and productivity,” he said when debating the Head of State’s policy speech.

Karim added the presence of more private technical institutes in Sabah would attract more school leavers to further their studies so that they can be more independent and would not rely too much on government’s assistance and subsidy.

He stressed that the agriculture and agro-based industry in Sabah was still largely unexplored despite the state having vast areas of fertile land.

He said Sabah is also geographically and strategically located within the rapidly growing BIMP-EAGA region which has a market of almost 140 million people.

Apart from tourism, he said, agriculture and agro-based industry are highly promising industries that can be further developed to significantly improve the State’s economy.

Strategies to develop the sector must not however exclude the local people but should instead be focused on finding ways how Sabahans can benefit from it and preparing the youths with the skill and knowledge was the best way to do it.

In this regards, he also urged plantation industry players in Sabah to reduce the number of foreign workers so as to allow more trained and highly skilled locals to take up the jobs availabe in the sector.

He said this would not only help provide employment opportunities to the locals but would also impact positively on the industry with the hiring of more skilled and trained workers.

He noted that Sabah was now in the final stage of phase one of the Sabah Development Corridor, the implementation of which require first class human capital for developing agriculture-based industries.

“As such, I must stress again that private technical institutes should seize the opportunities to invest in human capital development. This can also be considered as a corporate social responsibility to help increase the income and skills of the community,” he said.

1,000 youths sponsored for skill training programmes this year
Posted on April 29, 2011, Friday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=127006

THE Human Resource Development Department (JPSM) under the Ministry of Resource Development and Information Technology will sponsor 1,000 local youths for various skill training programmes this year.

The skill-based courses include dive master, nature guide, hospitality, beauty, grooming, tailoring, culinary, computer, reflexology, pastry, video shooting and flower arrangement.

In addition, 500 youths, single mothers and disabled people are expected to benefit from short-term courses such as cooking, tailoring, phone repair, handicraft and traditional cake preparation courses.

Deputy Chief Minister cum Resource Development and Information Technology Minister Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai said this at the State Legislative Assembly yesterday, adding that JPSM would continue to conduct 15 skill training programmes in technical and commerce fields for 314 youths statewide this year at the Commerce and Technical Training Institute (ILTP) in Papar.

He added that a new course, chargement, which started in January this year, is a partnership between JPSM, the Energy Commission and INSTEP Petronas.

“A total of 20 trainees have been accepted for the first session to undergo a three-year training.”

Yee further said that his ministry will organize English courses in Sabah to improve the standard of English among graduates, youths and the rural people.

“My ministry realized the weakness in the usage and command of English among young people, graduates and the rural people.

“Their weakness in English is among the factors of unemployment,” he stressed.

Furthermore, Yee said a study of human resource needs in Sabah for 2011 to 2015 is expected to complete in mid-year, which will be used to draft human resource development in Sabah for the next 15 years.

Speaking on information technology, Yee revealed that his ministry will increase and expand Sabah.Net, a state government-owned digital network, to 380 locations with a minimum speed of one Mbps.

The upgrade, which will link state government offices, including local authorities, is aimed to improve the delivery service of the state government to customers, he said.

“My ministry hopes that with the upgrade of Sabah.Net, it will encourage all state government agencies to innovate and develop online system applications to bring service to customers in a faster, more efficient and quality way.”

Yee further said that his ministry has proposed to build a submarine cable from Sabah under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) to connect the state to the Internet.

“I understand that the federal government has agreed to execute this project as an Entry Point Project (EPP) under the National Key Economic Area (NKEA) which is coordinated by the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) in the Prime Minister’s Department.

“I hope this project will be undertaken promptly to upgrade the Internet service, including broadband in Sabah as well as reduce the cost to consumers.”

‘Make PhD as basic requirement for IPT lecturers’
Posted on April 29, 2011, Friday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=126904

KUALA LUMPUR: The Higher Education Ministry yesterday suggested that doctorate degree (PhD) be made the basic requirement for lecturer post at all public institutions of higher learning in the country.

Its deputy minister, Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, said this was necessary to achieve the 75 per cent lecturers with Phd in research universities and 40 per cent at other universities.

“The increasing number of quality lecturers is one of the elements in the effort to empower institutions of higher learning (IPT),” he said in response to a question from Dr Syed Husin Ali in the Dewan Negara yesterday.

Saifuddin said the ministry also encouraged IPT to get qualified and experienced lecturers from overseas.

“The ministry has provided incentives to attract foreign experts to do their research at the IPT by providing attractive packages through the ‘contract for service’.

“The IPT can also attract specialist from local industries to contribute full time or on part time basis in teaching and research activities to reduce cost of getting the service of foreigners,” he added.— Bernama

Educational policy needs to focus on human capital development
2011/05/04
http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/E...pment/Article/

Quote:
Developing quality human capital will be crucial to achieving a developed nation status by 2020
KUALA LUMPUR: The Government in drafting the education policy should pay more attention to the objective of developing quality human capital, said the president of Transparency International, Malaysia (TI-M) Datuk Paul S K Low.

Developing quality human capital will be crucial to achieving a developed nation status by 2020, he said at the Corporate Directors Conference 2011 here today.

The policies put in place must be consistent otherwise it will interrupt the education process, he said.

"Our problem is that we have too many flip-flop decisions in making our education policy," he said, alluding to the back and forth changes made in the decision to teach Science and Mathematics first in Bahasa Malaysia, then in English and then back to Bahasa and now again back to English.

Paul said this during a discussion on "Challenges and Opportunities in Transitioning to a High Income Developed Nation" during the conference.

Themed "The Resurgence of Corporate Malaysia", the Corporate Directors Conference 2011 was organised by the Malaysian Alliance of Corporate Directors (MACD). - Bernama

Malaysia, Lesotho to strengthen human capital development -- Najib
2011/05/05
http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/M...Najib/Article/

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia and Lesotho have pledged to strengthen human capital development between both countries, with the latest effort being the Royal Malaysian Police Force (PDRM) personnel set to train Lesotho's police force.
Besides that, the Malaysian government also will train some of Lesotho's diplomats here.

These were among the outcome of talks between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his Lesotho counterpart Pakalitha Mosisili, here, today.
"We've had a very fruitful and interesting bilateral discussion. We have explored new bilateral cooperation and the prime minister (Mosisili) is very keen that Malaysia continue to support Lesotho, especially in human capital development and training.

"Since we launched the MTCP (Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme), we have received 94 officers from Lesotho for various types of training and this training programme under the auspices of MTCP will continue," said Najib at the joint media conference with Mosisili.

This is Mosisili's first official visit to Malaysia despite having been here to attend the Langkawi International Dialogue (LID) in 1997, 1999, 2002 and 2007.

On police training, Najib said Mosisili had made a specific request that PDRM train the police officers in Lesotho, especially in the area of public order and security, including upgrading their capacity.

"I'm delighted to inform that the Malaysian government stand ready to support this request by sending a few of our trainers and this training programme will begin soon," he said.

Najib said Malaysia also accepted Lesotho's request that its diplomats undergo training at the Institute of Diplomacy And Foreign Relations (IDFR) here.

"The training programme will begin in October this year and Lesotho is welcome to send some of its diplomats here for the programme," he added.

Meanwhile, Mosisili expressed appreciation for the continued support of the Malaysian government for Lesotho's human resource development.

"Human resource development is a key to the development of any country.

"This is because the other resources cannot be utilised if the people are not properly skilled to provide the benefits to other ordinary people," he said. -- BERNAMA

FSTEP: Malaysia needs qualified human capital
Posted on May 23, 2011, Monday

KUALA LUMPUR: It is crucial for the financial services sector to constantly improve the quality of its workforce and ensure an adequate supply of qualified human capital as Malaysia moves to become a high-income nation by 2020.

Financial Sector Talent Enrichment Programme (FSTEP) head, Lee Khee Joo, said human capital was an essential enabler for the financial services sector as the industry required highly-qualified people to continue innovating and raising standards.

“As Malaysia moves to become a high-income economy, the increasing affluence of its population will fuel demand for new and higher value financial activities.

“There are ample opportunities for Malaysia in the financial services sector, but at the same time it also needs to overcome some key challenges, including the acute shortage of industry talents,” he told Bernama in an interview.

Lee said the establishment of FSTEP in 2007 was a step in the right direction to help nurture talents for the industry.

FSTEP, a brainchild of Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) Governor, Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz, was an industry-driven programme managed by Institut Bank-Bank Malaysia in collaboration with BNM.

FSTEP trained and prepared high calibre graduates for employment in the finance sector under its one-year programme.

He said Malaysia did not lack talent; what it lacked was experience.

“Therefore, it is vital for FSTEP to cultivate talent in the face of competition among financial institutions to get the best staff with the liberalisation of the banking sector and the entry of foreign banks into the country,” he said.

Lee said the industry would face challenges in overcoming the talent shortage, specifically in the Islamic finance sector, as Malaysia became an international syariah-compliant finance hub.

Furthermore, he said, Malaysian financial institutions would also benefit from growing business relationships between Malaysia and China as well as India.

“As the Chinese and Indian businesses and customers prosper, demand for onshore and offshore financial services will provide additional expansion opportunities for financial institutions,” he said.

He said the Malaysian financial landscape was sound, competitive and diversified.

“To support its dynamic growth, the financial industry players are constantly recruiting and training new employees,” he said.

Lee said FSTEP’s noble objective was to enrich the talents of graduates to excel in their pursuit of a career in the financial services industry.

“In other words, we give the participants the right opportunities to unleash their potentials,” he said.

He said in its efforts to provide well-trained professionals beyond classroom scenario, FSTEP’s training involved enhancing the proficiency in English language, personal development programme in inculcating good ethics and values, Outward Bound activities as well as engaging in community and corporate social responsibility projects.

According to Lee, FSTEP had so far trained 782 Malaysian graduates of local and foreign universities, of which 60 per cent of them had since joined the financial services industry.

“Over the years, we have continuously fine-tuned our training programme to enhance its quality,” he said. Currently, FSTEP is conducting the Batch 6 training programme with 110 participants who are fully sponsored by the various financial institutions.

Lee said due to rising awareness and overwhelming response, FSTEP planned to enrol 120 participants for Batch 7, which would commence on Sept 20, 2011. — Bernama

Body to train members professionally to build quality human capital
Posted on May 26, 2011, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=132803

KUCHING: Saberkas is going to embark on a professional approach in giving training to its members as an effort to help build quality human capital.

Its president Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg said that they had written to the government and the latter had agreed in principle that the Agriculture Department Training Centre in Paloh, Samarahan near here, would be managed by Saberkas to train its members.

“We will work together with the Department of Agriculture whereby we will manage the training centre.

“Saberkas will also work with Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (Mosti) where we will introduce the latest technology in agriculture techniques, including what they called bioreactor technology together with Mosti,” he said.

Abang Johari, who is Housing and Urban Development Minister and Minister of Tourism and Heritage, told the media this at a news conference after chairing the Saberkas executive committee members first meeting of the year here yesterday.

He said through the professional approach, they would be getting Saberkas members with minimum diploma qualifications to be trained in that centre.

He said that the training module this time would be different from the present normal training programme as it would not only be of higher technology but would also include discipline for nation building.

“Once we get the premise, we will build certain components for training purposes, including a place for foot drill. At the centre, we will also set up incubator for the trainees to familiarise themselves with technology and upon graduation they will go back to their own area and put into practice the knowledge they have acquired.

“At the moment, we have one similar training centre in Kabuloh Miri except that it does not have high technology but in this case we will get the scientists from Mosti to come over here and we will train them,” said Abang Johari.

He further stated that the duration for the training would be six to 10 months and open to members with diploma qualifications.

“We welcome anyone interested for as long as they are diploma holders but first of all they must be Saberkas members,” he noted.

Curtin Sarawak, IEM Malaysia strengthen ties
by Anthony Joseph Posted on May 26, 2011, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=132829

MIRI: Working hand-in-hand with other stakeholders will help fulfill the government’s grand vision for Miri and Sarawak, as well as help the nation’s efforts in capacity building, knowledge acquisition and skills development.

Curtin University Sarawak and Institution of Engineers Malaysia yesterday renewed their cooperation in human capital development, knowledge acquisition and skills development by extending the memorandum of understanding (MoU) they signed in 2006.

The areas of cooperation included education and training, research, exchange of facilities and staff development.

The signing was witnessed by Assistant Minister of Communications Datuk Lee Kim Shin, who is also the chairman of Curtin Sarawak Management Board.

Signing for Curtin Sarawak was its pro vice-chancellor Prof Ian Kerr while IEM was represented by its vice president PE Chong.

Lee, in his remark, said it was crucial for Curtin Sarawak to collaborate closely with professional bodies such as IEM to keep abreast of the latest development in the profession and industries.

“It will also help promote the engineering profession, create career opportunities for young people and jointly ensure the advancement of our city, state and nation. It will also create goodwill within the community,” said Lee.

To date Curtin and IEM had jointly organised conferences, seminars and talks. IEM is also the sponsor of the annual IEM Gold Medal Award for top achiever in engineering. In addition to that, several IEM members sit in Curtin’s School of Engineering and Science’s Advisory Panel while several of Curtin Sarawak’s engineering personnel hold positions in IEM Miri branch.

Lee said he hoped IEM would continue to support the university in its endeavour to produce world-class graduates who could find jobs even before they graduated.

Also present to witness the signing ceremony were Curtin’s deputy pro-vice chancellor Prof Alistair Inglish, Dean of the School of Engineering and Science Prof Yudi Samyudia and IEM Miri branch chairman Peter Ting Kang Ngii.
