Zahid urges M'sians to grab rising prospects in aviation industry
The country must grab the expanding opportunities in the aviation industry and prepare its human resources plan for the next 30 years.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi said opportunities are abound in the field of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), which falls under what most would deem as difficult, dangerous and dirty jobs.
In his speech during the official launch of the International College of Yayasan Melaka-Langkawi Aviation (ICYMLA), Zahid said he foresees that Malaysia would become a hub for the aviation industry in the next 10 years.
“We need a futuristic plan for 30 years ahead, and one of the fields that we see a need for is the MRO.
“From what we are seeing now, the opportunities in the industry are expanding rapidly. We can see that there are so many engineers, so many skilled workers in aviation today. Given that, we must also start thinking from now, based on the trends in the aviation industry in Europe and Northern America, there are many other areas that we can and must explore.
“I believe that come 2030, and what more by 2050, there will be a lot of jobs of which the description and positions we might not even imagine today would exist. This is what we can start preparing for,” he said in his speech.
Zahid also lauded the college for its part in training human resources in the MRO sector, which he described as taking a step further to prepare the workforce for future markets.
ICYMLA, which has 475 students, offers courses for Cat A aircraft maintenance technician license and Cat B aircraft maintenance engineer license training programme, among others.
