  • More high-tech jobs for highly skilled talents are expected to be available in the next few years especially coming from the aerospace, nanotechnology and healthcare sectors.

Aerospace in the country registered a 9.4%  industry growth last year with value worth RM30.3 billion. About 54,000 jobs in engineering, electronics, composite materials as well as manufacturing and systems integration  are expected to be available in this industry. This is supported by the 200 aerospace-related companies that continue to push for high-level services.

For nanotechnology, Malaysia is taking tiny yet firm steps to adopt this technology in local industries. Through strong industrial and research partnerships, the country can be in a prime position to help meet the world's demand for new inventions and innovations. Seven years from now, it is estimated that 24,000 new jobs will be linked directly or indirectly with nanotechnology activities.

Malaysia's healthcare sector is expected to grow to RM11.29 billion by 2018, says Frost & Sullivan. Aging population is the main driver for more available quality healthcare services and ultra modern equipment. With that said, more skilled and knowledge-based people are needed to fill in jobs that would help revolutionise the industry.
