PKNS urged to establish cooperative, polish PROTUNe talents — Exco

By Diana Abd Wahab

SHAH ALAM, Jan 20 — The Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) has been urged to establish a cooperative under Program Tunas Niaga (PROTUNe).

State executive councillor for entrepreneur development Rodziah Ismail said the initiative will help polish talents among participants involved in the programme, thus exposing them to cooperative management.

“We think it is about time for PKNS to establish a cooperative since PROTUNe has been organised for 24 years now.

“The cooperative will ensure the entrepreneurial ecosystem among students can be expanded upon and improved,” she said after the 24th PROTUNe Convention at PKNS’ headquarters yesterday.

Rodziah said she does not want the students’ involvement in PROTUNe to end once they graduate.

“Even though PKNS has its entrepreneurship programmes covering secondary school to tertiary education institutions, we do not want the student’s journey as an entrepreneur to end.

“We want them to remain in the entrepreneurs’ community, therefore we must continue guiding them as has been done under the Selangor Hijrah programme,” she said, adding that further discussion on the cooperative will be held with PROTUNe’s management soon.
