PM announces training scheme for students in ECRL project
BY RAM ANAND

Quote:
PUTRAJAYA, June 14 — An industrial training scheme that would arm Malaysian students with the necessary skill sets to work on the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project is in the pipeline, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today.

"Many job opportunities will come up and in our training scheme, we have identified 3,600 local students to be under this programme," Najib said while launching the ECRL Industrial Training programme here.

Under the initiative, Malaysian students will be trained according to a syllabus developed by two Chinese universities.

Once the training is complete, they would automatically be offered jobs either in China Communications Construction Company, as the main contractor of the project, or Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd, a Finance Ministry subsidiary, which is the project owner.

The programme will take between three and six months to complete, with various local universities participating.

The majority of the students are East Coast natives.

"We have to add [more students] and we will add more students. Recently, when I went to China I thought that we have to train our own people before we launch this project," Najib said.

The ECRL project is estimated to cost RM55 billion.

Najib: People ready to embrace developments brought by ECRL
BY MAZWIN NIK ANIS Thursday, 15 June 2017

Quote:
PUTRAJAYA: The much anticipated East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) will not only be a game changer for the economy and landscape of the east coast states, but will also change the people’s mindset on development.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said people were ready to embrace the changes the ECRL would bring to their hometowns.

He shared his recent experience of a visit to Bachok, Kelantan, where the locals were excited to see a model of the train that will be in service once the project is completed.

“From there, I knew this was not just a game changer but something that would help change their mindset,” he said when launching the industrial training programme for the project yesterday.

A recent survey for the project showed a positive response from the people, with over 95% of the respondents in favour of it, he said.

“We believe the ECRL will bring many benefits to the east coast region. It will provide job opportunities ... good and efficient alternative transportation, as well as a positive social impact,” Najib said.

He added that with the ECRL, the east coast states could also expect to see the opening of more business and trading hubs, and industrial areas, as well as a tourism boost.

It would also lead to improvements in education, housing, health and other facilities.

On the training programme, he said 3,600 local talents would undergo training to equip themselves with the skills needed in rail construction, and to know the trains that will operate on the ECRL.

“To ensure that the local people benefit from this, I want the majority of those given the training to be from the east coast states of Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan.

“I hope they will grab this opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills to land the jobs that the project will bring,” he added.

This is a corporate social responsibility prog*ramme by China Communications Cons*truction Company – the turnkey contractor for the ECRL project – and Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Finance Minister Inc.

The ECRL is an electric railway system linking the east coast states to the Greater Klang Valley.

Starting from Wakaf Bahru in Kelantan and ending in Port Klang, the 688km link consists of 23 stations. Passengers will be able to complete the journey in less than four hours.

weird that that side of Malaysia has a more modern looking train than the peninsula...
You would have thought that the government would have committed more to the "economic center" of Malaysia...
