13th May 2015 – MALAYSIAN Prime Minister Najib Razak launched the Malaysian Social Enterprise Blueprint 2015-2018, a three-year strategic roadmap for developing a social enterprise ecosystem.
The aim is to empower the Malaysian social enterprise sector to be self-sustaining, equitable and people-centric, and to create more impact-driven entrepreneurs by the year 2018.
“The role of social entrepreneurship in promoting sustainable and equitable economic growth has been a focus of many governments around the world,” Najib said in the foreword of the blueprint, which was unveiled at the Cyberjaya headquarters of the Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre (MaGIC).
“The Government recognises the potential of social entrepreneurship in not only addressing our country’s pressing, issues but in also redefining how business should work in order to achieve a people-centric economy,” he added.
