At Invest Malaysia which was conducted recently on 30th March 2010, YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak’s said in his speech, “We can no longer rely on just a few sectors of the economy to drive our growth. We must diversity and provide incentives in new strategic industries where our nation has expertise, strength and potential for even greater success. As we expand into these areas, we should also consider the value that we can gain from the competencies of the Malaysian workforce – those living here and Malaysians abroad. They – with the support of foreign talent where appropriate – can provide the brainpower, the intellectual capital and skills to help us realize our goals more meaningfully”.
