Can The Government Create 500,000 Jobs Through JanaKerja?

The government has pledged to create 500,000 jobs through the JanaKerja scheme, but how realistic is this target? The Morning Run finds out from Dr Amanina Abdur Rahman, Economist at World Bank, Malaysia. She also discusses where jobs might be created, whether the government's priorities are on the right track, how it can encourage private-sector hiring, and how it should reset its labour policies.
