Hot on the heels of a series of socio-economic labs organised at our respective regional development agencies a fortnight ago to plan for programmes to improve the livelihood of the people, we are now exploring the possibility of collaborating with Skills Development Department (DSD) to provide skills training. This collaboration was mooted during the visit by the department to our office this morning, led by its director, Sudirman Bin Suratin. RECODA on its part has already lined up few upskilling programmes which will kickstart this year. This latest collaboration with DSD will further enhance our effort to upskill our people, especially the youths, who are the driving force of the economy.
