Boost more youth opportunities with digitalisation in #Selangor2022, assemblyman urges

By Mustakim Ramli

SHAH ALAM, Nov 25 — The state digitalisation agenda must be refined and improved to create more economic opportunities for youth, said Kota Anggerik state assemblyman Najwan Halimi.

He said this is necessary given the fast-paced world, and if current thinking is still being done within the old economic model framework, then youths will be left out of the race.

“The last budget announced the digitalisation agenda, and we need to review the aspects which can be improved as under Smart Selangor people can only see the upgrading of infrastructure and services such as parking.

“It is not just a service solely for the local and state authorities, as it needs to be expanded in terms of improving the economy of youths,” Najwan said in an interview with Selangor Media.

He also hoped the state government would offer initiatives to help youths more effectively, as opposed to giving one-off assistance which is less impactful.

“We need to give guidance like Sitham (Selangor Indian Entrepreneur Development) and expand it across all races by helping all youths, regardless of them being in the urban or rural areas,” he said.

The 2022 Selangor Budget (#Selangor2022) scheduled to be tabled at the Selangor State Legislative Assembly tomorrow focuses on reviving the economy to help people during the Covid-19 post-pandemic period.

Also emphasised is ways to increase revenue and assistance to the population affected by Covid-19.

The presentation can be followed live through the Facebook pages of SelangorTV and Media Selangor.
