CYBERJAYA (April 15): Malaysia has a good talent pool that is flexible and adaptable to be trained for different conditions and operating environments, said Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) Deputy Minister Dr Ong Kian Ming. He said the trust shown by China-based telecommunications and electronics giant Huawei to train and develop human capital in Malaysia for both local and global operations, is an encouraging sign of the group’s confidence in local talent. Ong said the training centre, Huawei’s first outside of China, is a good example of the group’s close trade and investment ties in Malaysia, where it has over 2,500 employees, two-thirds of whom are Malaysians. He said 60 percent of those trained were locals, with foreign trainees originating from several countries including Thailand, Egypt and the Philippines. “I believe the decision can also encourage more Chinese companies to come in with bigger investments,” he added.
