Its Minister M. Kulasegaran said there are many such centres parked under different ministries and he hoped that this can be changed to eliminate redundancy.
“The overlapping must stop, why must there be competition between ministries?” he asked.
“It’s all under one family. I will submit a paper to the Cabinet to standardise it,” he told reporters after visiting the Industrial Training Institute here on Sunday (June 3).
Kulasegaran was commenting on the need for the standardisation, as some skills training centres also come under the Education and Youth and Sports Ministries.
Kulasegaran said such practices started in the 1990s and must be stopped.
“We don’t want competition between ministries.
“We want to compete with the private entrepreneurs and with other countries to be the best in the world. That should be the way,” he said.
