TANJUNG MALIM: There is no need for Malaysians to migrate to become successful, says Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan.
The International Trade and Industry Minister II said there are plenty of resources and opportunities for Malaysians, especially youths, to start a successful business here.
“They can go abroad, learn new things for a few years and come back. Using their acquired knowledge, they can then set up operations and venture into e-commerce,” he said after attending a Transformasi Nasional 2050 (TN50) roadshow organised by the Perak Gerakan Belia Bersatu Malaysia at SJK(C) Choong Hua 2 in Bidor, near here.
“They should make full use of our natural resources and raw materials here,” he said.
Ong said there are now a lot of factories in Malaysia that are exporting products to other parts of the world.
“These businesses are using the Internet to promote their products in the world market. Some local products include Ipoh’s famed white coffee and durian, which are in high demand in China,” he said.
“Competition for quality products is expected to increase along with market expansion. As such, research and development will be important. This is another field that people can get into,” he added.
In his speech during the TN50 event, Ong said the Government was concerned about ever-changing global trends.
“We are committed to improving the development of domestic human resources to ensure we can meet the requirements of future technologies,” he said.
“Malaysia actively promotes and develops digital technology facilities in order to meet trends in e-commerce and intelligent production,” he added.
He also said that the year 2050 belongs to the young generation.
“We need their contribution and constructive ideas to shape a successful Malaysia,” he said.
