Investment In Women A Wise Deal - Rosmah | 27/03/2010
Untitled document KUALA LUMPUR, March 27 2010 (Bernama) -- Investment in women to enhance their participation in the 1Malaysia development stride is a wise deal, said wife of the prime minister, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

She said the investment would give a long-term and continuous return on equity for the prosperity of the country.

"It is like improving healthcare facilities and welfare, and educational opportunities and participation, and encouraging women to take part in economic activities, management and the country's administration.

"I am confident and hope the '1Malaysia Women' will continue to be major elements in boosting the economy and becoming the pillar of the nation," she said in a keynote address at the 1Malaysia Women Seminar 2010 with the theme "Empowering Women Through 1Malaysia" here Saturday.

Rosmah, who is the patron of the seminar, said advancing access to education, employment opportunities and socio-cultural change among the people would inspire women to move forward and contribute actively to the country.

Speaking to reporters at the seminar, Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Jalil said the seminar was not only to discuss the 1Malaysia concept but also on how to optimise women's potentials.

The resolutions passed at the seminar will be submitted to the cabinet, she added.

Women must change their mindset and inculcate positive spirit if they want to strive for excellence, she said, adding that, "Women must become stakeholders... becoming catalyst to changes," she said.

As mothers, she said women must instill positive values among their children like the spirit of racial unity and help to make the 1Malaysia concept a success.
