Over lunch hour , i heard the Cabinet Secretary talking about a
program the government is doing with Oracle to develop Skilled labour.
Reminded me of a similar initiative conducted in partnership with
Multimedia University to train young people on SAP, anyone with an
idea of the impact such capacity building programs are having on the
sector?
