PM: Priority to nurture talent

KUALA LUMPUR: Developing and nurturing a solid, local talent base is top on the Government’s agenda, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said yesterday.

The Prime Minister stressed the importance of human capital development stating that it is “the most important investment a country can make” as it is the core of innovation and leads to a productive high-income economy.

“Our willingness to invest in human capital development has put Malaysia in good stead as a nation.

“In just one generation, we have successfully transformed from a low-income agriculture economy into an upper middle income modern industrial economy,” said Najib at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman‘s 13th convocation at Dewan San Choon, Wisma MCA, yesterday.

“No economy can succeed without a highly-skilled talent base that responds creatively to economic changes, and is centred on creating, developing and utilising knowledge.

“For this reason, we are widening access to our education system at all levels, from pre-school to higher education, to ensure that every Malaysian can realise his or her potential,” he told the graduates.
