PORT DICKSON: The adoption of technology-based learning is crucial in developing world class education in the country.

Port Dickson Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said in line with this, a secondary school here would be the first to be adopted by a multibillion electronics and information technology company from Japan.

“Artificial intelligence and internet have taken the education world by storm. This is the future.

“When I met the company executives we discussed this. They showed interest to chosing one of the schools here to be involved with the company especially in the field of technology. It is however still under discussion and we will announce the name of the school once it had been chosen,” he said.

The PKR president said this in his speech during a visit to Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Intan Perdana here today.

Anwar said in the midst of rapid physical development in Port Dickson, the emphasis on the need to provide affordable facilities to the public should not be sidelined.

“There’s nothing wrong in wanting to build a five or six star hotel, but I tell them (developers) that they should also build a theme park which is open to the public from all walks of life.

“If they can’t afford to stay in a hotel, at least they can enjoy the convenience of the recreational park, if the facility is provided at an affordable price,” he said, adding that the implementation of a development project should also open up more job opportunities for the local people.

“The construction of a hotel here will open about 600 new jobs to the young people. I also suggest that training and accommodation facilities must also be provided to help the locals, especially the young generation,” he said.

Earlier, Anwar also presented an allocation of RM720,000 to SK Intan Perdana, which was approved by the Implementation Coordination Unit (ICU) Prime Minister’s Department, for the construction of the student’s hall rooftop.
