YAB Tuan Chow Kon Yeow

(Penang Chief Minister)

I believe this initiative will improve the economic situation of many families, and thus complementing our Penang Lawan Covid-19 campaign. In addition, I believe that this initiative is both timely and crucial in terms of establishing a job bank in order to reduce the alarming unemployment rate as we prepare to restart the economy once the current situation improves.

YB Tuan Soon Lip Chee

(Penang State EXCO for Youth and Sports)

This is a fruitful collaboration between the public and private industry players in creating a win-win solution under this We Want You Platform. Therefore, I would like to urge our Penangites to come forward and take full advantage of this initiative.
