YB Dato’ Seri Idris Jusoh was in Jakarta recently for a working trip to meet his counterpart in Indonesia and held a meeting with Malaysia students studying in Jakarta. Despite his heavy schedule, the Minister has taken some time off to visit one of the CEO@ Faculty program members in action. The CEO@Faculty Programme (CFP) is a cutting-edged initiative set in 2015 aims to effectively engaged collaboration between the public universities in Malaysia and the industry. One of the aims of CFP is to bridge the public universities and the industry in the area of entrepreneurship where the latter are tasked to share their experiences with students and professors in the public universities with objectives to create more entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in the country.
During the educational tour visit, the MOHE and his delegation were briefed by the Chairman of Malaysian Proven Group of Companies (PGC), Dato’ Yusof Jusoh on the Titanium Square, an integrated mixed development project comprising of thousands units of apartments, hotel and a shopping mall. The delegates not only benefitted a lot from learning how this mixed development project was done, innovated and managed, but most importantly they were exposed to how to do and succeed in doing a cross border businesses.
To date, PGC is the only Malaysian company who is involved in construction business in Jakarta. Their first project was 2 years ago, building the 1 million square feet of Shopping Mall and apartments in Tangerang.
The MOHE hopes that more entrepreneurs will follow Yusof’s footsteps in exploring and doing business in Jakarta and Indonesia as a whole as there is indeed a great potential to do business in the country.
