PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak challenges private sector public listed companies to choose women board of directors from among the 200 capable women the Government has trained.
"Ask the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry for the list of women," he said during the Women's Day Celebration 2012 Tuesday.
The Ministry's Malaysian Directors' Academy (Minda) had targeted 200 competent and experienced women to be trained and offered as potential company board of directors candidates by end of this year.
Najib said that there were many women top decision makers in the public sector and it was now up to the private sector to appoint women board of directors.
