KUCHING: Youth are urged to take up entrepreneurship to increase their income and improve the socio economy of their families.
“I want more youth in the Demak Laut constituency to be involved in business and produce more entrepreneurs,” said Demak Laut assemblyman Dr Hazland Abang Hipni.
He said young constituents should take up skills courses at the Santubong Community College, adding that there is now a huge demand for professionals skilled in basic air conditioning installations and services.
“Technical fields such as installation and air conditioning services are now in high demand. More houses in Kuching are now air conditioned.
“In addition, not many Bumiputera youth are involved in air conditioning services and such course would be beneficial to them,” he said.
He was commenting on a Basic Air Conditioning Installation Course held for Demak Laut youths at Santubong Community College recently which saw 16 youth from Taman Sepakat Jaya taking part in it.
“Every week, we in the Demak Laut service centre hold skills certification courses at community colleges with different fields.
“It is open to the residents in Demak Laut provided they have interest and strive to develop themselves.
“This opportunity should be taken into consideration because it is not only free, but gives added value to the youth who pursued it,” he said.
