KUALA LUMPUR: The government has established Majlis Kemakmuran Bumiputera (MKB) as the highest platform to empower the socio-economic development of the bumiputra community in the country.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin told the Dewan Rakyat that the Perikatan Nasional government remains committed to put the bumiputra agenda as its national priority.

He pointed out that although many successes have been achieved to improve the standard of living of the community, its socio-economic position should be improved further.

"Taking this into consideration, the government has set up the Majlis Kemakmuran Bumiputera (MKB) as a highest platform to empower the socio-economic development of bumiputras.

"I will chair the council which will steer and speed up the economic empowerment of the bumiputras," he told Datuk Seri Dr Mujahid Rawa (PH-Parit Buntar) during Question Time on Thursday (Aug 13).

Mujahid had asked the government to state the measures taken to improve the socio-economic development of the bumiputras especially when the number of unemployment has risen, without blocking the opportunities of other races.

He said the government was also committed to make the bumiputra agenda a success through the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030 and the 12th Malaysia Plan (RMK-12) that will be tabled early next year.

"Insyallah, I am confident that all parties will put their best efforts to make all the plans a success, and we will improved the socio-economic standing of the bumiputras without jeopardising the rights and opportunities of other races so they can share the prosperity of the country together," he said.

The Prime Minister also decided that the Bumiputra Agenda Steering Unit (Teraju) will be the main coordinator in the socio-economic development of the community.

"The entrepreneurial culture will continue to be inculcated in an integrated manner through the roles of other agencies such as Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Bhd (PUNB), Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) and other bumiputra related agencies," he said.
