Wanita MCA urged to take lead in encouraging women in business

KUALA LUMPUR: Wanita MCA has been urged to take the lead in encouraging Chinese women to actively participate in entrepreneurship programmes.
MCA secretary-general Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan said more women entrepreneurial talents should be developed and take full advantage of opportunities brought by the rise of Industrial Revolution 4.0.
“In tabling Budget 2018, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced 2018 as Women Empowerment Year.
“He put forward several important measures in the Budget, including the mandatory requirement for at least 30% participation of women as board of directors in government-linked companies, government-linked investment companies and statutory bodies,” Ong said when opening the Wanita MCA’s 42nd annual general meeting at Renaissance Hotel here.
On the Industrial Revolution 4.0, Ong said it would open up a whole new environment with great significance for women.
With machines replacing manual labour, gender would no longer be an obstacle or excuse for an individual to progress, he added.
“The opportunities and room for development among women will become limitless,” he said.
