2010 A New Milestone For Rural And Regional Development Ministry
Mohd Shafie explained that MARA that once was well known for producing entrepreneurs in various fields, should continue moving forward to re-establish the entrepreneurship culture.
"I propose that MARA through MARA Inc. ventures into new fields. Among the new fields and the emerging ones that can be considered are petrochemical, nanotechnology, biotechnology, neurotechnology and also ICT applications," he said.
MARA should be independent. There are various approaches that can be taken by MARA. The precondition is that its management should be more systematic and focused, and with clear goals.
With assets worth around RM8.0 billion, MARA should utilise its assets optimally through effective asset management strategies, noted Mohd Shafie.
