Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob will maintain support like financial, job and training assistance and incentives so that no Malaysians will be left behind as the nation recovers.

The Prime Minister said in a virtual closing ceremony of the International Public Employment Forum (IPEF) on Wednesday (Sept 8) said that the Malaysian Family concept sums up the spirit of the nation.

Malaysia continues to focus on the national development agenda and makes sure that fellow Malaysians are taken care of.

He ensured, “It is my commitment that the country’s recovery from this pandemic will be allencompassing and inclusive.”

The speech delivered by Datuk Seri M. Saravanan, the Human Resource Minister, elaborated that short- and long-term policies need to be implemented to move forward the transformation.

He believed that the expansion of an inclusive active labour market should include a reintegration strategy as it forms an important part of any initiative that seeks to protect social security.

“The involvement of every level of the community, including employers, workers and job seekers, graduates and youth, is needed to weather this unprecedented crisis,” said the minister.

The Prime Minister said the government had announced various initiatives that support business continuity, employment retention, reskilling and upskilling programmes, and job creation and hiring incentives.

The Malaysian government hopes that the IPEF has provided insights into the way forward, especially on matters related to employers and employees who are the backbone of every nation of the world.
