The ministry, according to Najib, earlier this year had launched Women Director Programme to train up and equip women to hold decision making positions in companies. The Government has a goal of getting 30% of its workforce to be women in key role designations.

Between January 2011 and April 30, 2012 a total of 80,597 people took part in 1Azam Programme and Najib expects the figure to reach 100,000 by this year-end.
