Only 16 Per Cent Of Tourism Sector Staff Have Diploma Or Degree

PUTRAJAYA: — Only 16 per cent of staff in the country’s tourism and hospitality industry possess a diploma or degree, said Higher Education Minister, Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin.

He therefore hoped that the Malaysian Centre of Tourism and Hospitality Education MyCenTHE) established last year, could play an important role in producing more skilled workers for the industry.

“MyCenTHE was established to increase the number of people with higher qualifications in the industry. The target in the long term is to produce at least 50,000 skilled personnel each year from 2020 onwards.”

Mohamed Khaled said this after opening the International Conference on Tourism and Hospitality Education, here, Tuesday. It was held in conjunction with MyCenTHE’s first anniversary.
