Creating additional business opportunities

Participants at the parenting tips programme that aims to guide them on ways to teach their children to manage money responsibly.

JOHOR BARU: State investment arm Johor Corporation (JCorp) is developing human capital and providing business opportunities for Johoreans, says its president and chief executive officer Datuk Kamaruzzaman Abu Kassim.

He said programmes to create more entrepreneurs in Johor were put in place under Yayasan Johor Corporation as the conglomerate saw many potential young talents who could be groomed to be successful entrepreneurs.

“Our entrepreneurship development programmes not only focus on producing successful entrepreneurs, but also creating those with integrity and knowledge,’’ said Kamaruzzaman.

He said this in his speech at the launch of a parenting tips programme to guide parents on teaching their children to manage their money at Maktab Sultan Abu Bakar here on Sunday.

Kamaruzzaman said JCorp’s Entrepreneur Class Plan, which started in 2016, taught some 2,000 students from 33 schools in the state by providing them an opportunity to work with companies under the conglomerate.

He said statistics showed a majority of Malaysians were having problems managing their finances, with some of them unable to make the right decisions in matters related to monies. — VENESA DEVI
