Call to place strong focus on OKU development in workforce

The development of persons with different abilities (OKU) employed in the government and the private sectors must be given a strong focus. In a phased survey conducted by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS), it was found that over 130 people with different abilities are employed.

Meanwhile, the Manpower Planning and Employment Council (MPEC) Permanent Secretariat has identified more than 480 persons with different abilities who are able to work, which demonstrates the need for a greater recognition of them as valued members of society capable of contributing towards national development.
