KUALA LUMPUR: The Women and Family Development Ministry has called on Sirim Bhd to help it develop training and research and development in women's cosmetics and health products. 

Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil said the national standardisation and quality organisation responsible for industrial research and development could train women entrepreneurs in the production of women's care products. 

“Sirim could also contribute towards research and development in women's health and beauty products,” she said on Friday at the opening of the National Exhibition on Dynamic Women 2003 at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, with the theme “Towards Your Quality Lifestyle”. 

Shahrizat's speech was read out by her ministry's parliamentary secretary Datuk Mastika Junaidah Hussin. 

She said the total sale of cosmetic products in Malaysia is more than RM450mil a year and is estimated to exceed RM2.4bil by next year.
