New unit to boost bumiputra economic participation

PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak launched the “Unit Peneraju Agenda Bumiputera” (Teraju) to further strengthen the bumiputra development agenda.

The special unit would look into five areas, including entrepreneurship and wealth creation, to boost bumiputra economic participation.

The remaining areas are funding, education and employment, institutional and policy instrument review and stakeholder management.

The Prime Minister said Teraju would also propose institutional reforms to increase effectiveness. “Teraju will work with relevant agencies to develop implementation initiatives, review existing programmes and manage the implementation of these programmes,” he said at the launch after chairing the Bumiputra Agenda Action Council meeting yesterday.

“To better understand ground issues and sentiments, it will be crucial for Teraju to engage with non-governmental organisations and stakeholders,” he said.
