KUALA LUMPUR: Plans and programmes to assist entrepreneurs in these trying times will not be derailed amid the imposition of the movement control order (MCO) and nationwide state of emergency.

Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar gave such an assurance in a statement yesterday.

He cited the execution of the second phase of the Entrepreneur and Cooperative Recovery Plan with an approved budget of RM17.1mil, under the Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Ministry (Medac).

Contained in the recovery plan are the E-Commerce Onboarding Coaching Programme (E-Board), i4.0 Accelerator Programme, Technopreneurship For Young Graduates (TpYG), Adoption of Digital Solution (ADS), Recovery Initiatives For Social Enterprise (RISE) and Program Penjana Komuniti.

“While we do not foresee the pandemic situation worsening, Medac, however, has embraced the new norm of doing things in today’s post-Covid era, which is digitalisation. That is why we are able to carry out our programmes despite the current situation, ” he said. — Bernama
