Thursday, October 23, 2014

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today announced the eRezeki project to connect Malaysians at the bottom 40% of the income pyramid (B40) with domestic and global digital income.

“eRezeki will be rolled out across multiple Digital Work Centres and this work centres can be in the form of Urban Transformation Centre, Rural Transformation Centre, community colleagues and mosques to impact rural and urban low income households,” he said at the closing of the 26th MSC Malaysia Implementation Council Meeting here today.

He said the project included a series of Digital Capability Programmes which would eventually train and match 400,000 empowered B40 community members with micro tasks from domestic and foreign sources, helping each of them earn an average additional annual income of RM6,000 by 2020.
