THE experiences of government pensioners could be put to good use in the run-up to the 2050 National Transformation Programme (TN50).
Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said pensioners could offer their expertise at forums, workshops and TN50 sessions. He said this after closing the TN50 pensioners forum organised by the Malaysian Government Pensioners Foundation (YPKM) yesterday.
“Pensioners can use their experience to help the government.
“A department director with 15 years of experience in his field, for example, could offer invaluable input.”
Mahdzir said the sharing of experiences in paving Malaysia’s future via TN50 was one of the vital ways in which pensioners could contribute to the cause.
The forum gathered more than 200 government pensioners nationwide to discuss and deliberate on topics of welfare, pension rates and future plans.
YPKM chairman Tan Sri Aseh Che Mat said a resolution containing 18 items was drafted as a result of the forum, and would be submitted to the government for approval soon.
“We discussed urgent matters, for example, on how government pensioners are divided into many associations. We agreed that we will unite to ensure TN50 is a success.”
