KUALA LUMPUR: The Ministry of Human Resources encourages restaurant and eatery operators to hire qualified cooks from local government-run training institutions.
Its deputy minister Datuk Mahfuz Omar said it was to ensure that young people receiving intensive training and having specialised skills in this field can earn a steady income.
â€œThe government will continue to cater to various local industry training agendas in the culinary field and related disciplines that have been initiated by the previous government.
â€œCooking can no longer be looked down upon, it even has its own class as local training institutions have produced many accredited people in cooking,â€� he said in a question and answer session at the Dewan Rakyat yesterday. â€” Bernama
