The Malaysian government is set to introduce new initiatives in the areas of solar energy and electric vehicles (EV).
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has revealed a new initiative with focus on renewable energy technology, particularly in Melaka.
The new program is within the framework of Technical Education and Vocational Training (TVET), and it is with a substantial allocation of RM6.8 billion, as per the local reports.
According to Ahmad Zahid, Chairman of the National TVET Council, “this represents a significant opportunity for Melaka, given the increasing demand for a skilled workforce in the renewable energy sector and the growing need for high-tech job opportunities.”
The new initiative is expected to attract investors not only to Melaka but also to other states in the field of renewable energy.
It has been reported that the allocated fund will not only support the development of TVET institutions, but will also facilitate the introduction of new courses related to renewable energy.
Currently, Malaysia hosts 1,334 TVET institutions across the country.
