The nation's diversification process received a boost recently when His Majesty called for the exploration and development of other resources, instead of total reliance on hydrocarbon products, said a party political leader.
Dr Hj Mohd Hatta Hj Zainal Abidin, the President of PPKB, remarked that the call was a good sign, as it would further encourage economic progress through other sectors like that of agriculture.
"It would also benefit the local population, as they now have an opportunity to contribute to national development.
"However, the efforts must be made in the spirits of awareness and competitiveness," he added.
"The government has allocated B$250 million for Human Resources development.
"Therefore, the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources as well as Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports must work hand in hand to prepare programmes and training," Dr Hj Mohd Hatta stated.
He also called for the Ministry of Education to diversify its system to prepare for the process of diversification.
