It will benefit Chennai, with its human resources reserve base, says Malaysian Minister
Chennai: India specially, Chennai with its rich pool of human resources, stands to benefit from the Talent Corporation, to be set up by Malaysia, to enhance competitiveness, said Raja Nong Chik Bin Raja Zainal Abidin, Minister of Federal Territory and Urban Wellbeing, Malaysia.
Talking to The Hindu, Mr. Raja Nong Chik Bin said the proposed Talent Corporation, to be established by the end of this year, would import talent from all over the world, including Malaysians settled abroad. The Government has taken a decision and the modalities are being worked out.
Malaysia has had a fairly strong economy for the past few decades. Now, the need to import talent was felt as there was a shortage of skilled workforce in information technology, engineering and financial services. Due to its close proximity to Malaysia, Chennai, with its human resources reserve base, will be benefited, said the Malaysian Minister.
To be functional by the year end, the Talent Corporation, apart from enhancing people to people relations, will propel the next cycle of growth, Mr. Raja Nong Chik Bin said. Visa related problems will be lesser in the future, he added.
