Budget 2022: TVET sector to get RM6.6bil to focus on meeting industry needs

PETALING JAYA: The Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector will receive an increased allocation of RM6.6bil under Budget 2022.

Last year, the sector received RM6bil.

Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz said the focus is on meeting industry needs and an additional allocation of RM200mil has been allocated for joint venture programmes with industries.

“In the 12th Malaysia Plan, the government identified TVET as one of the drivers of change in meeting the demands of employers in our industries better,” he added.

Tengku Zafrul was tabling the 2022 Budget in Dewan Rakyat on Friday (Oct 29).

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob earlier had said the Budget was drawn up to benefit all quarters in line with the Malaysian Family concept which assures that no one will be left out in the country’s recovery agenda after experiencing difficulties brought by the Covid-19 pandemic.
