Chief Minister of Sarawak and Yayasan Sarawak Chairman View
YAB Tan Sri Datuk Amar (Dr) Haji Adenan Bin Haji Satem
Chief Minister of Sarawak & Chairman of Yayasan Sarawak
I must say in years past, we had neglected the area of technical education. It is not too late to catch up. I am the chairman of the Yayasan Sarawak, which has some say in this regard. About 10 years ago, started sending students for technical education on three-month or six-month courses and supporting those having diploma to go for degree courses. We will intensify skilled education because we need manpower if we want to industrialise. We need the technicians, electricians – and we need our students to go for all these technical pursuits. Technical education will continue to be our emphasis.
