Youth Unemployment Is Still A Problem

Youth Unemployment Is Still A Problem

Malaysia’s youth unemployment rate is 10%.

And according to our Economy Minster Mohd Rafizi Ramli, this is due to a skilled talent mismatch between what local training institutions are producing and the actual skills that the market demands.

What is happening on the ground with our youths and students? And what can be done to boost employment among our youths?

We speak to Camelia Loh, Founder of Kabel, a HR tech startup, and Sryee Inthran, Senior Vice President of the National Career Development Centre Association (NACDA Malaysia) to understand better.
