MDEC CEO Datuk Ng Wan Peng(filepic) said to reach this target, MDEC would train 150,000 new participants for both programmes.

NILAI: The Malaysian Digital Economic Corp (MDEC) is targeting an additional revenue of RM544mil next year from its “e-Usahawan” and “e-Rezeki” programmes, says chief executive officer Datuk Ng Wan Peng.

She said to reach this target, MDEC would train 150,000 new participants for both programmes.

“We will reach the target via the “#You Can Duit” campaign. We have travelled the length and breadth of the nation to promote income generation through the ‘e-Rezeki' and ‘e-Usahawan' programmes.

“We will offer free training to participants so that they can use the knowledge to generate more online income for themselves,” she told Bernama.

She encouraged programme participants to visit e-Rezeki and e-Usahawan centres in their respective districts to obtain computer and broadband knowledge to enhance their online business.

Ng added that the #YouCanDuit, introduced to help the lower income household supplement their income, via “e-Usahawan” and “e-Rezeki”, had trained 100,008 participants who had earned a cumulative RM136.6mil since 2015. — Bernama
