STATE GOVT CONCERNED OVER JOBLESS PROBLEM:YEE
The State Government is very concerned over the unemployed problem in the State, said Resource Development and Information Minister Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai.
Some of the measures taken to resolve the problem is offering training programmes to jobless graduates and matching vacancies and job seekers through the Sabah Job Centre, he said after launching the Pikom Sabah Chapter here yesterday.
Yee said workers that would be retrenched in Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore in the current economic condition were expected to return to the State to look for jobs and this would further worsen the job market.
On the Pikom Sabah Chapter, the Minister urged information communication and technology vendors in the State to become members.
Among those present at the ceremony were Pikom Chairman David Wong Nan Fay, Pikom Sabah Chapter Chairman Hseih Yang Vui and Pikom President CJ Ang.
