‘More women working now’

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia has made significant progress in the past six years to increase the number of women in the workforce and in decision-making role in the corporate sector due to Government initiatives that sought to enhance the contribution of women to the economy and to promote greater inclusiveness in the workforce, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.

Speaking at a Women in the Workforce Dialogue organised by Talent Corporation Malaysia (TalentCorp) with a group of women representing those who have returned to work under TalentCorp’s Career Comeback Programme, he said Malaysia’s female labour participation rate (FLPR) climbed to 54.1% in 2015 from 46.8% in 2010.
