SHAH ALAM: The government is considering sending Malaysians to Japan to learn the nation’s unique business models, before returning and applying them here.Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the government is searching for Malaysians who would be interested in partaking in the project. “We have to remember that ‘rezeki’ (income/livelihood) comes from businesses. “If you expect (a monthly) salary, you won’t go far, but if you do business, you can become a millionaire. “I went to Okinawa recently and I identified several types of business (models and products) that can be (introduced to) Malaysia. “I’d like to find people who would be interested to be sent to Okinawa and other places in Japan to learn their business (models),” he said in his speech during the Nak Ubah Hidup 2020 programme at the Setia City Convention Centre in Setia Alam here, today. Dr Mahathir urged Malaysians to be more involved in the business field as it could change their lives dramatically, especially those living in rural areas. The Prime Minister also expressed hope for more Malaysians to try something new in an effort to improve their lot in life. “I visited a glass (manufacturing) factory (in Okinawa) and I saw all these beautiful glass products. “They asked me to try to make one on my own and I thought to myself, ‘I’ve never done this before, so how can I do it?’ “But, believe me, I managed to make a red glass (item) in 15 minutes although the quality was not that great. “What’s important is we learn. If we have a capability but won’t make efforts to polish it, then we won’t be able to harness that capability,” he added. Dr Mahathir has visited Japan, including Okinawa, several times since taking over the Prime Minister’s post in 2018. The last time he was there, Dr Mahathir wrote a blog post in which he said he believes that Japan holds the solution to Malaysia’s B40 and cost of living issues.
