Getting More Malaysians Back to Work

Laurence Todd, Head of Research and Development at IDEAS, helps us dissect the RM 6.5 billion Malaysia@Work budget initiatives. We discuss whether it does resolve the structural issues facing Malaysia and if there are other short term solutions to the issue of low wages that might really be the problem rather than just the headline unemployment figures.

Presented by: Wong Shou Ning, Khoo Hsu Chuang
