(Bernama) - The Malay Chamber of Commerce Malaysia (DPMM) will hand over 20 resolutions passed at the Malay Economic Congress last year to Datuk Seri Najib Razak in March.
Its vice-president, Rizal Faris Mohidden Abdul Kadir said the resolutions,which had been discussed at the grassroots level, would serve as guidelines forthe future direction of Malay entrepreneurs in the march towards Vision 2020.
He said the resolutions were passed at the congress, which was attended byformer prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in October last year.
Rizal said the resolutions would be deliberated at the national-levelroundtable for dissemination at the zone and district levels before they were fine-tuned for submission to the prime minister.
"We do not want the Malays to lag behind and miss the economic opportunitieswhen the country is developed by 2020," Rizal told reporters after the opening of the East Zone Malay Congress 2013 by Kelantan State Secretary Datuk DrZainuddin Ibrahim at Bandar Baharu Tunjung here today.
The congress is organised by the DPMM Research and Development Foundation,the Kelantan DPMM and the Malaysian Economic Action Council.
He said two more zones - Putrajaya and Penang - had yet to hold the Malay Congress this year.
