KUALA LUMPUR: A one-stop centre to be set up in three years will help fashion apparel design manufacturers to compete in the international market, said Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen.
She said most of the more than 200 manufacturers involved in the industry were unable to expand their businesses due to inadequate trading area and lack of financial backing.
“The establishment of the Kenanga Wholesale City will be the first such centre to assist manufacturers in the small-and-medium-enterprise (industry) to clinch a share in the international market,” she told reporters after the soft launch of Kenanga Wholesale City at Plaza UE3 near here yesterday.
Present were Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd group chief executive officer Yee Ia Howe Malaysia Garments Wholesale Merchants Association chairman Datuk Ang Say Tee and Kenanga Wholesale City group chairman Brig-Gen (R) Datuk Abdullah Mohamed.
Dr Ng said she had seen such centres in several locations in China and was impressed with the concept.
“Locals and foreigners will be able to shop here without the hassle of running from one place to another,” she added.
KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA will field more women candidates in the coming general election, said Wanita MCA chief Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen.
“There will be more women candidates compared to the last election,” she said.
A way to keep fit: Representatives of the Bentong MCA Lifelong Learning Centre performing a line dance during the MCA 9-point party platform exhibition on Saturday.
She said the new faces slotted for the elections would be young and less than 40 years old.
However, she declined to reveal the number of seats that had been allocated for the wing.
In the last election, MCA fielded 11 women candidates. All but one won.
In the 1999 election, MCA fielded five women candidates and all of them won.
“The number of women candidates has increased over the last two elections,” she said before delivering a talk on “Money Works @ Wealth Management” at the MCA 9-point party platform exhibition held at Putra World Trade Centre yesterday.
She said she would love to see more women contest in the election, as women’s votes were also important.
“Wanita MCA has set a target of getting 80% of Chinese women to vote for Barisan Nasional this time around,” she said.
PUTRAJAYA: Those who own the sex DVDs featuring Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek should either throw them away or crush them and stop talking about the scandal altogether, said Wanita MCA chief Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen.
She said the DVD, which led to Dr Chua’s resignation from Cabinet and all his party posts on Wednesday, was a very “demeaning way” of exposing one’s private life.
“I call on everybody to stop talking about this matter and give Dr Chua and his family time to undergo a healing process,” she said.
“Malaysians cannot afford to have a situation where they are always wondering who is taping them.
“I dare say no one thinks that everyone is perfect. But Dr Chua is a courageous man and has taken responsibility for his behaviour by coming out and admitting it and apologising to the people.”
In Kuala Lumpur, Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said: “He made the right decision. What is wrong is still wrong.
But, as a friend and colleague who has known him for a long time, I feel sad over his absence in the Cabinet and party.
“I admire and respect his stand.”
In Penang, Gerakan acting president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said Dr Chua’s resignation was a “great loss” to the country.
Describing the resignation as “very unfortunate”, Dr Koh said Dr Chua was an “effective minister” who showed “strong leadership” by stepping down.
PETALING JAYA: There are still many women who have not registered as voters, including professionals, said Wanita MCA chief Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen.
She said this was what Wanita MCA found when it went door to door to educate the public about political awareness.

Dr Ng said most women want political stability and security.
“They want harmony and peace for their children and family.
“This is because whenever there is instability, women and children are the first to be affected,” she said after attending the Children’s Christmas and New Year Cheer organised by Yayasan Wanita Cemerlang at Sunway Lagoon Theme Park here yesterday.
Dr Ng also said Wanita MCA had launched several programmes to attract women to register as voters.
“We emphasised political awareness and organised events such as mass line dancing.
“We also went door to door, not to lobby for votes, but to educate women on the importance of registering as voters,” she said.
She added that everyone should exercise the right to vote.
KUALA LUMPUR: There are many moneymaking opportunities for single mothers if they have the right mindset, Wanita MCA chief Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen said.
She said they needed to pick up some soft skills like decorative furnishing and curtain-making, which would allow them to work from home.

“The main problem facing single mothers is lack of skill and confidence.
“Having the right attitude is important Ã¢â‚¬” they need to have the go-forward mindset and pick up new skills.
“If they let things like money, marketing skills or time stop them, they will not get anywhere,” she said.
To give single mothers a boost, the wing’s MPTC Lifelong Learning Centre, in collaboration with AX Home Deco Sdn Bhd, is providing a decorative furnishing and curtain-making course.
The course is part of the MCA Lifelong Learning Campaign.
The course is also ideal for those who want to enhance their personal development or those interested in learning new ways to beautify their home, said AX Home Deco consultant Alexis Lim.
“All that the participants need is interest and the ability to sew a straight line on a sewing machine,” she added.
The course is divided into four phases.
Participants who have successfully completed all four phases in the course can participate in MCA’s vendor programmes and become fabric sales agents for AX Home Deco.
The course costs RM485 per person, but Wanita MCA will be offering 10 scholarships to deserving women on a first-come-first-served basis.
