Najib Calls On Malaysians To Prove They Are Capable Entrepreneurs
He said this after the Malaysian External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) had given a RM13 million grant to help local businesses expand overseas.
"The Malaysian External Trade Development Corporation has given RM13 million out of the RM20 million from the Market Development Grant (MDG) to almost 1,000 entrepreneurs to expand their businesses overseas.
"Make use of our grants to expand your businesses overseas," he said in his latest Facebook and Twitter posting Saturday.
Najib also provided a link to a Bernama news report on Matrade's grants.
Yesterday, MDG senior manager Mohamad Noor Azhad said the number of recipients comprising Bumiputera entrepreneurs increased to 19 per cent this year, from 18 per cent last year under the grant given by the Government.
Last year, he said, the government allocated RM46.7 million under the MDG where 3,000 entrepreneurs benefited.
