Equal Opportunities for Higher Income?

Achim Schmillen, Senior Economist for Social Protection & Labour, World Bank Group

Equal Opportunities for Higher Income?

A World Bank report has suggested that Malaysians' income could rise as much as 26% if women have equal access to economic opportunities. Seeing as this would mean a RM9,400 more in annual income per capita, we speak to Achim Schmillen, Senior Economist for Social Protection & Labour at the World Bank Group, on the barriers to achieving gender parity in this issue, as well as the current government's measures towards including more women in the workforce.

Presented by: Lyn Mak, Wong Shou Ning, Julian Ng
