KOTA KINABALU, June 25 -- The Bumiputera Agenda Steering Unit (TERAJU) says it is committed to encouraging youths to venture into new economic sectors including healthcare, pharmaceuticals, engineering services, aerospace and aquaculture in the 2020-2030 period.
Chief executive officer Md Silmi Abd Rahman told reporters after visiting Anjung Selera here that under the Bumiputera Economic Transformation 2.0 Roadmap, these sectors are seen as having good future potential.
He said TERAJU will continue to empower the Bumiputera economy in the state with an allocation of RM7.5 million for the Bumiputera Entrepreneur Development Fund (DPUB), which aims to help the B40 group grow their businesses through its business modules.
He said the RM13.5 million project to upgrade the Anjung Selera building, begun on Sept 18, 2017 and completed on March 31 last year, is a TERAJU project under the DPUB fund with the collaboration of the state government through Sedcovest Holdings Sdn Bhd.
The building has 64 commercial lots including food and beverage outlets, retail shops and entrepreneur kiosks, as well as a multi-purpose room, a surau, a mini-market and an open stage. -- BERNAMA
