The increasing use of technological advancements could see Malaysia lose 65% of current jobs by 2027, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan, as reported in The Sun Daily.

He cited that the fourth Industrial Revolution, more commonly known as the digital era, will see the radical advancement and increased usage of technology. This, he stressed requires Malaysians, especially the skilled workforce, to be empowered with skills in order to harness their talent and potential.

“We are unable to catch our breath because the world is moving at a fast pace with the digital economy,” said the Minister, when officiating the 51st annual general meeting (AGM) of Malay Chamber of Commerce Malaysia (DPMM).

Accordingly, he noted that the government is putting high hopes on non-governmental organisations (NGOs) such as DPMM, and will invite its leadership to meet the PM Najib.

“We want to make sure of the use of technology to increase output and productivity, especially among Bumiputras in the future,” he said, at the ceremony held at the Seri Pacific Hotel as reported in The Sun Daily.
