100 days at Entrepreneur Development Ministry, Ramanan stays focused on empowering MSMEs

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Ramanan Ramakrishnan is determined to continue to empower the economy in line with efforts to achieve the vision and mission of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

After 100 days at the Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Ministry, the deputy minister said his main focus, together with Minister Datuk Ewon Benedick and the entire top ministry leadership is to continue boosting the economy for the people and the country.

"I see this appointment as a recognition and trust of the people and the country that should be carried as best as possible. It is a great responsibility that needs to be carried out with integrity, sincerity and honesty for the sake of political stability, economy and the prosperity of the country.

"100 days have provided various experiences and lessons to gain knowledge at the ministry and to continue moving forward with all agencies under this ministry. I see this responsibility as the best platform to develop the entrepreneurial sector of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs)," he told Bernama on Sunday (April 7).

In advancing this agenda he said he would organise initiatives and programmes that were relevant to the needs of MSMEs.

This is to ensure that every step taken would provide real benefits to the entrepreneurial community, including providing investment opportunities, access to training and development, as well as support in business management," he said.

Ramanan said several diplomatic ties had also been arranged involving representatives of Asian countries including India, Singapore and China.

"The ministry is also making plans for the Prime Minister's visit to India this year," he said.- Bernama
