International Graduates Fill Critical Gaps In Industry

The government is considering a proposal permitting international graduates to work in Malaysia to address talent shortages, particularly in engineering and technical fields.

Datuk William Ng, Chairman of Small and Medium Enterprises Association shares insights on how this could impact the SME sector.
