MELBOURNE: Malaysia's Public Services Commission(PSC) has gone abroad to seek for qualified Malaysians to be recruited to work in the diplomatic and administrative services.

Its chief assistant secretary Siti Jalilah Abd Manap said a selection examination was conducted simultaneously on Saturday in key cities of the world, involving about 60,000 young Malaysians.

The top 1,000 candidates will be short-listed for about 100 places, which will be decided at the Assessment Centre in Kuala Lumpur, she told Bernama here at the Malaysia Hall where the test was conducted.

"We are looking for high-quality candidates to further lift the standard of the country's public service. We want the best and the brightest," she said on Sunday.

She said in Australia, there were 14 Malaysian degree holders - eight female and six male - who majored in law, engineering, economic and commerce that took part in the selection process here.

The successful candidates will be announced by early next year, she added. - Bernama
