MALACCA: The setting up of a rehabilitation centre at the Bandar Hijau Social Security Organisation (Socso) at Ayer Keroh shows that the Government cares for the welfare of its employees, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak (pic).
Delivering his keynote address during the opening of the RM238mil centre on Friday, Najib said the centre known as the Tun Razak Rehabilitation Centre is a milestone achievement for Socso since it inception in 1971.
"The centre is a gift to Malaysian employees and debunks the naysayers' propaganda that the nation is on the brink of bankruptcy.
"The state-of-the-art facility is the first in South-East Asia to blend vocational and rehabilitation as a training module," he added.
Najib said the centre provides an opportunity for injured employees who no longer have a steady income to return to the workforce.
