THE Bumiputra Manufacturers and Services Industry Association of Malaysia will undertake a pilot project to enhance information communications technology (ICT) awareness among entrepreneurs.
The project cost of some RM2.5mil would be financed by the Entrepreneur Development Ministry, the association's president Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said.
Some 75 companies chosen will implement the computerised system, he told a media briefing in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday.
The project is also aimed at increasing product quality and profit through the use of ICT.
The association will work with Azan Dagang Sdn Bhd in managing the project.
Raja Nong Chik said the association was also involved in the distribution of computerised English language training products that had already been adopted by the Education Ministry.
It would organise a briefing on the economic package on June 12 for small and medium-scale entrepreneurs, he added. Bernama
