Ministry to utilise integrated enforcement management system from today

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 20 — The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry (KPDNHEP) has begun to fully utilise the Integrated Enforcement Management System (IEMS) today to conduct price checks on goods.

Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said through the system the enforcement of price of goods will be more structured, while the implementation of the IEMS nationwide would be done in stages.

“With this system, the previous manual implementation will be replaced with a more sophisticated electronic system with programmed tools,” he said after launching the Integrated Enforcement Management System here today.

He said the system would also reduce human error, streamline records and avoid negative perceptions that the summon amount could be manipulated.

“The system will be implemented in six states, namely the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Melaka, Selangor, Perlis and Negri Sembilan and it will be implemented throughout the country in stages,” he said.

Saifuddin Nasution said the ministry’s enforcement officers inspect between 700,000 and 800,000 premises annually and issue between RM3.5 million to RM4 million worth of compounds a year.

He said failure to display price tags and using the old weighing tool was among the most common offences committed by traders.

Meanwhile, Saifuddin Nasution said 16 kinds of goods were priced under the implementation of the Festive Season Maximum Price Control Scheme (SHMMP) in conjunction with this year’s Chinese New Year celebration, an addition of three items compared to 13 during the same festive season last year.

The three additional items are red chilli, tomatoes and potatoes imported from China.

Among the items listed under the price control scheme are live chicken, standard chicken (slaughtered and cleaned with feet, head, liver and and gizzard or any part thereof), super chickens (slaughtered and cleaned without feet, head, liver and gizzard), grade A, B and C chicken eggs (by weight each), imported round cabbage (Indonesia and China not including Beijing cabbage) and Chinese garlic, white pomfret, large white prawns, live pigs, pork (belly) and pork (meat and fat).

Saifuddin Nasution said the pricing of goods for the states was made in accordance with the current market price and took into account the change in prices, especially for imported goods.

He was also satisfied with the prices of goods at NSK Trade City which was deemed to be very low in conjunction with this year’s festive celebration.

“The price tags are clearly displayed. The price reduction when selling the goods is very significant, for example red chillies should be sold for RM13 per kilo, but instead is offered at RM8.88,” he said.

He said inspections would be conducted by his ministry from time to time at selected premises throughout the duration of the scheme.

Prices of goods will be monitored from January 20 to February 2.

THEREALDEAL Employees must reskill themselves for IR4.0

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 12 -- In moving towards Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0), employees are advised to reskill themselves from now on if they want a promising career in the future.

The National Tech Association of Malaysia (PIKOM) chairman Ganesh Kumar Bangah said this is because digital transformation would bring constant changes and employees must embrace as well as be prepared to adapt with the changes.

“We cannot wait to start on digitalisation…the government has allocated a lot of funding to adopt IR4.0. The job in the future will be different from today; if you are in a job that can be replaced by AI (artificial intelligence) or robots, you have to make sure to reskill yourselves.

“So we need to update now. The challenge we are facing is people don’t understand what IR4.0 is,” he told Bernama at the Asian Oceania Computing Organisation - Pikom Digital Summit 2019 here today.

Ganesh said this summit was organised to give exposure to IR4.0 as well as enhance the engagement among industry players, increase business opportunities and promote growth for the tech industry.

The three-day summit, which began yesterday, has attracted more than 600 participants from over 13 countries in the Asia-Pacific region including Bangladesh, India, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Riding on the theme of 'Defining The Future', the summit will see more than 35 local and regional speakers deliberate on key topics that would define the growing role of technology.

Elaine Tan TURNAROUNDS

“These aren’t slow growers; these are no growers.” Lynch said turnaround companies are “battered, depressed and often can barely drag themselves into Chapter 11.” If they survive and fix their problems, however, they can rebound very quickly and stock prices are least related to the overall market. One of Lynch’s favorites in this category was Chrysler (now Fiat Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU)); it was also a cyclical stock, although that aspect was not as pronounced. From the time he bought in 1982, it became a five-bagger in two years and 15-bagger in five years. He found many opportunities among these temporary losers.

“These aren’t slow growers; these are no growers.” Lynch said turnaround companies are “battered, depressed and often can barely drag themselves into Chapter 11.

THESE ARE STOCKS WITH NO GROWTH BUT BATTERED, DEPRESSED AND ALMOST GOING BANKRUPT

If thegreedz can call Cyclical "gruesome" then what will he call "turnaround?

He will be horrified!

Like he was so horrified when we recommended arbb7181

Hahaha!!

So dumb indeed!!

Read again very very carefully Peter Lynch;s wise words from experience

If they survive and fix their problems, however, they can rebound very quickly and stock prices are least related to the overall market.

SEE. IF THEY SURVIVE?

THE ARB SECRET

"THEY CAN REBOUND VERY QUICKLY!!!

"AND STOCK PRICES ARE LEAST RELATED TO THE OVERALL MARKET!!!"

Last year many stocks crashed but SOME STOCKS DID WELL

(SO THERE IS A SPECIAL BOOSTER BECAUSE OF IR4.0 UPSTREAM RM100BILLIONS JOB CAPEX!!)

NOW SAME FOR ARBB7181 BECAUSE OF IR4.0 IS THE NEXT BIG THING!!!

GO AND STUDY HOW PETER LYNCH PICKED 100 10 BAGGAR STOCKS BECAUSE OF PICKING CYCLICAL TURNAROUND THAT FINALLY BEAT WARREN BUFFET!!!

A 10 BAGGARS MEAN A STOCK THAT CAN GAIN 10 X (times) or 1,000%

kenny chua Greatness comes from the desire to do extraordinary things—to reach beyond the status quo and relentlessly chase your dreams. It all starts with setting and achieving goals, but when you aim higher than where you set your mark, you force yourself to get better, one victory at a time.

There is greatness inside all of us, but first we must choose to be great. With a finite amount of time to live your ideal life, the time to embrace your inner excellence is always now.

On every stock trade there is someone who wants to sell and someone who wants to buy, at least at a particular price. ...the person who is selling thinks that she is getting out just in time while the person buying thinks that he is about to make good money.
... The truth is that the market doesn't really reflect some magical perfect valuation of a stock under the efficient market hypothesis. It reflects the mass consensus of how actual individual investors value the stock. It is the sum total of everyone's hopes and fears...”
22/01/2020 10:52 AM
RJ87 I'm trying to figure out the "mass consensus" of 10mil profit but 0.7sen EPS trading at 30 sen for PE 11. Do you think market are interested still? I think should be something like DNEX. About the same numbers of shares. About the same EPS and margin. About the same business.

I'm interested in LOA and PO than MOU and later followed by good EBITDA margin.
If a business is not making any business sense. Then I wonder how the mass establish their consensus?

Come...sell me good business... show me good numbers.

Here's few numbers I don't like, In cash flow statement, cumulative Trade receivable was 14mil in Jun. Then, Sep reports 8 mil profits, but cumulative trade receivables increased to 44mil. What it means is, ARBB havent collect a penny from since Mac last year. Their profit is "profit". Are you guys aware of that? However, it's pretty obvious that the management is selling hope and numbers that hasn't materialize.
22/01/2020 11:35 AM
RJ87 If market maintains this price after full PA conversion, total numbers of shares would be 1.8Bil after conversion. Market cap will be RM540mil if maintains at 30sen. Increase 7X.

Who does it's actually benefits from the 7x increase in market cap? It's non other than the 1.4Bil PA warrants owner. Which is not you. I have a hunch, the management has a big piece of these warrants.Potentially, serious punters here owns the PA warrants too. They only profit if the price maintains when the conversion completed. I don't see how it benefits ordinary share holders buying at this price. Downside is huge, upside limited.

RM540mil market cap, what's the premium? For it to go up 10sen, market cap is RM720mil. On the back of 30mil revenue and 10mil profit. That's trading 18X years earnings.

andychin888 Industries told to be ready for IR4.0


THE Industry 4.0 is reshaping the manufacturing and production industries.



Deputy Chief Minister I Datuk Ahmad Zakiyuddin Abdul Rahman said it was crucial for these industries to embrace and adopt the new digital industrial technology.



“It is time to reassess and realign your business strategy. Adapt to the current changes of doing business.



“The Industry 4.0 has the potential to transform the industries in many ways.



“Businesses can strive to improve productivity, efficiency, costs, quality and management in the face of IR4.0,” he said in his speech before opening ‘IR 4.0: Connected Factory’ showcase at ECA Advanced Solutions Sdn Bhd in Bukit Minyak today.



Ahmad Zakiyuddin said that the manufacturing industry was an important economic sector which had contributed about 22% of the nation’s gross domestic products (GDP) in the last five years.

“The growing manufacturing industry attracts investments, creates business opportunities and stimulates job creation.



“The manufacturing sector is expected to remain resilient next year,” he added.



Also present were Bukit Tambun assemblyman Goh Choon Aik, Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) Penang director Yusni Md Yusop, Ministry of International Trade & Industry (MITI) regional office (Penang branch) director Clement Wong Chen Siong and ECA Advanced Solutions Sdn Bhd director Roger Ooi.

Elaine Tan Fourth victim dies from coronavirus in Wuhan

BEIJING: A fourth person has died from pneumonia in the central Chinese city of Wuhan following the outbreak of a new coronavirus, health authorities said.

The 89-year-old man developed symptoms on Jan 13 and was admitted to hospital five days later after he experienced severe breathing difficulties, the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission said in a statement yesterday.

He died on Jan 19.

The commission said the patient also had underlying health diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and coronary heart disease.

In a separate statement posted on its official Weibo account, the commission said 15 medical workers in the city had been diagnosed with pneumonia with one other suspected case.

Of the infected staff, one was in critical condition, it added.

Wuhan has designated nine hospitals for pneumonia treatment and 61 fever clinics to tackle the spread.

The city’s health commission published a list of the hospitals and clinics on its website.

A medical expert team has been set up, with 25 members from 10 provincial and municipal hospitals, according to the health commission.

On Monday, a high-level expert team of China’s National Health Commission confirmed people-to-

people transmission of the novel coronavirus and infections among medical staff.

Zhong Nanshan, a renowned respiratory expert and head of the team, said two cases in Guangdong province were confirmed to be people-to-people transmission.
22/01/2020 8:56 PM
THEREALDEAL “Beyond technical skills, universities also have a crucial role to play in ensuring soft skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, leadership skills and lifelong learning are integrated across all programmes, so that graduates can cope with rapid changes in the industry and take charge of their own learning,” said Tan, adding that in reality, it takes years for programme syllabi to be updated at university and to keep track on what is current and changing within the industry.

She also noted that not many students took the initiative to take courses to get additional certifications relevant to the IR4.0 workplace, citing time constraints and a lack of value as their reasons.

While students and parents believe employers are looking to younger talents as technologically-savvy employees who will help them in their digital transformation, graduate respondents paint a different picture that there are organisations unwilling to adopt a new generation of talent, stating legacy issues and an unwillingness to adopt new processes as the key challenges faced in the workplace — pointing to a mismatch of expectations from graduates and the reality in the industry.
INITIATIVES

Tan said INTI has begun the process to equip future talents for the rapidly evolving technological workplace through innovative teaching and learning, and in developing strong industry partnerships with over 450 industry partners.

“Our initiatives will provide students with the experience and readiness for them to be integrated into the workforce, such as real-world employer projects, industry advisory boards, workshops, boot camps, industry-led competitions, short courses and internships where graduates would have gained some experience and insights on how to deal with current challenges when they enter the workforce. Some of the high-tech industry partners that we currently work with on these initiatives include IBM, Google, Alibaba GET, Dell and Glodon,” she said.

In addition to current initiatives, INTI offers Design Thinking as part of the required Mata Pelajaran Umum module across all bachelor’s degree programmes.

This module teaches students to analyse and develop solutions to real-life challenges, to achieve the best outcomes in an innovative and efficient manner.

“Through this module, students work closely with industry, gain exposure to current social issues, and develop their skills in research, presentation, teamwork and the ability to view challenges critically. The programme also empowers students to be socially-conscious while preparing for careers in a digitally-driven world,” Tan said.

INTI also continues to organise its Industry Advisory Boards, where members of faculty and industry meet to evaluate curriculum and the inclusion of industry trends in learning.

“These measures are part of acknowledging that education must change to meet the needs of a new digital era and through this, INTI continues to prepare future talents to be part of the IR4.0 workforce,” Tan remarked.

Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), meanwhile, has been responsive and actively embarking on IR4.0 related initiatives for the past three years, starting from a campus-wide campaign and awareness drive in 2016.


The university has 13 Data Analytics Labs on various campuses for data camp training programmes that are open to students from all faculties as well as 21 Smart Classrooms that support the design and implementation of Active, Relevant, Interactive and Fun learning (ARIF).

Early this year, the university launched the Pioneering University Framework of UiTM to put forward the provision of High End TVET programmes where UiTM is to introduce emerging technology competencies in the diploma, degree and professional programmes such as Enabling Technologies for Industry 4.0 Revolution as stipulated by the National Policy on Industry 4.0 (Industry4WRD).

Its vice-chancellor, Emeritus Professor Dr Mohd Azraai Kassim, said: “This means that in general, an intuitive approach is taken in designing and developing a fluid, dynamic and organic curriculum”.

“Students are prepared to face the changing world, to be able to use their existing skills and quickly learn new ones to be participating members of society. Other than the 21st century competencies, students must be socially competent, adaptive competent, digital competent and must have a high level of personal competence,” he said.

To have these, the curriculum is built to be both industry and community relevant, with future proof content offered through multidisciplinary electives and academic programmes.

Most programmes have been revised to embed data analytics and/or any of the nine IR4.0 technological advances such as autonomous robots, simulation, system Integration, IoT, cybersecurity, cloud, augmented reality (AR), and additive manufacturing.
23/01/2020 10:09 AM
THEREALDEAL As an example, the undergraduate degree programmes at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering are built on flexible and organic curriculum where the students are exposed to special topics like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT) and Robotics.

Elective and non-credit courses are offered across faculties, cross campuses and via multimodal delivery, with the intention of creating a more holistic approach in nurturing students. Such learning materials are provided online to enable easy access and to encourage collaboration with a diverse group of learners.
“To date, there are more than 500 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) developed and completed in UiTM. By 2021, it is expected that there will be a proliferation of MOOCs and micro learning courses that will allow students to have a learning buffet, with a spread of courses that can be taken out of interest or for further certification in related fields.

“Credit transfer from courses taken from other universities or providers will be instituted to cater for the growing spirit of ubiquitous and distributed learning,” said Mohd Azraai.

He also highlighted that as part of UiTM’s provision of IR4.0, research and development has been and continues to be geared towards emerging technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence.

The university has also drawn up an initiative branded as Education 5.0@UiTM that responds to IR4.0 while emphasising the humanistic part of education.

Education 5.0 is defined as a learning-centric ecosystem that is sustainable, balanced and principled, driven by values, powered by intellect and afforded by new, ubiquitous technologies.

UiTM deputy vice-chancellor (Academic and International) Professor Dr Mohamad Kamal Haron said the initiative focuses on placing the ownership of learning on learners. Nevertheless, he added, the approach emphasises instilling values and principles through less-prescriptive learning.

“Learning is also seamless and learning can happen anywhere, anytime, from any device, with and from anyone, and through any path. Thus learning experience can be designed to be diverse and of variety,” he said.

IR4.0 WORKPLACE

According to Digi chief human resource officer Elisabeth Stene, an IR4.0 workplace is one where employees are empowered to respond quickly to customers, conduct business responsibly and adopt technology to fuel business and work efficiency.

“This is supplemented by dynamic leaders, agile way of work, a strong emphasis on collaboration and a culture where learning is a permanent state to stay relevant. We believe that this is the foundation required for companies to go through disruption and transformation,” she said.

How far has IR4.0 been adapted in the workplace and is the IR4.0 workplace already in existence in Malaysia today?

Stene said the IR4.0 workplace is no longer a new concept as it’s been around for the past three to four years.

Many organisations in the region have indeed adapted and transformed themselves into an IR4.0 workplace, and Digi is one of them.

“We’ve digitalised our core operations and ensured that our people embraced the change well. For such a large-scale transformation, it is crucial to foster the right mindset and culture across the organisation.

“From the onset, we instilled in our people the right mindset — that digital transformation is not just an IT project but a company-wide agenda, sponsored by the entire senior leadership — and the right values that drove a change in our culture.

“I’m pleased to say that we are now reaping the benefits from our digital transformation that enabled Digi to be an IR4.0 workplace today,” said Stene.

Feon Ang, vice president of Talent and Learning Solutions, Asia-Pacific at LinkedIn, meanwhile, observed that both traditional and tech industries are adopting new technologies such as AI and automation to improve operations, introduce new products and services, and provide a better experience for their customers.

“While employers are looking for talent with hard skills in these technologies, it’s soft skills that continue to be important across jobs and industries. Investing in the right talents who have both skill sets is what’s important for the company,” she said.

MOVING FORWARD

Stene noted it is encouraging that most universities in Malaysia have already started ensuring that their curricula is integrated with subjects that are relevant in preparing students for the IR4.0 workplace.

“Higher education institutes should balance theory with practical experience — encourage internships, experiential learning and develop curriculum via partnerships with corporates.

“In return, corporates too should be open and provide opportunities for students to experience the challenges and change their way of working due to Industry 4.0 as these students are the future workforce,” she said.
23/01/2020 10:10 AM
THEREALDEAL Ang, meanwhile, opined that the most important thing is to encourage everyone to have a growth mindset — especially when they have completed their schooling.

“Learning doesn’t stop at schools. In fact, in schools, we are learning how to learn, as well as understanding and finding our paths. With this, it also takes commitment by the broader ecosystem — from government, companies and education institutions — to help bring this to fruition.

“From a skills perspective, it will be challenging to adapt curriculum solely to cope with hard skills changes. If there’s one thing we’d suggest, the biggest skills gap is soft skills. From leadership, creativity to problem-solving, these are skills that will last for life,” she said.

From the higher education point of view, Tan said being the main provider of competencies needed by graduates for IR4.0, universities must re-evaluate their current offerings.

“Among the skills needed to thrive in IR4.0 are the mastery of key IT skills to enable students to enhance their career prospects.

“For example, a business student should learn how to maximise e-commerce as most business platforms are currently leveraging on the many benefits and success of the e-commerce scene.

“Quantity surveying students should learn how to use building information modelling (BIM) software as most building and construction firms use BIM to improve productivity, promote better collaboration and communication and mitigate risks,” she elaborated.

There should be greater collaboration between higher education and industry partners to enhance curriculum and ensure its relevance to current market demands.

“When students learn current trends in the industry by participating in employer projects, industry-led competitions or internships, they pick up essential skills and knowledge to help them in their future careers.

“Students should also focus on the development of personal skill sets alongside academic excellence. The development of personal skills sets such as teamwork, adaptability to change, ability to communicate effectively and having a mindset for lifelong learning are the competencies that will enable students to remain relevant, regardless of the roles or industries they enter,” she said.
