PETRONAS, TEGAS Work Towards Stronger Technological Cooperation

PETRONAS and Tabung Ekonomi Gagasan Anak Sarawak (TEGAS) inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to create digital jobs and talent upskilling through the newly-established PETRONAS Regional Delivery Centre in Sarawa that will generate digital jobs for local talent and serve as a launchpad for developing the region’s digital ecosystem.

Datuk Bacho said, “PETRONAS is committed to the holistic development of the local community not just by creating more digital jobs but also through upskilling in areas such as software and data engineering.

“Our efforts will also include training unemployed and underserved job seekers in low code development skillsets so that they, too, can participate in the digital economy,” he added.

Commenting on the collaboration, Datuk Len Talif said, “We look forward to working with PETRONAS on developing an inclusive digital innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem through the TEGAS Digital Village and Digital Innovation Hub, in line with the Sarawak Post COVID-19 Development Strategy 2030. We will further promote the partnership by leveraging our existing relationships with local startups, ecosystem partners and universities in Sarawak”.

The collaboration will go beyond the creation of new jobs, as PETRONAS and TEGAS seek to constantly enhance local community entrepreneurship and digital innovation activities. The joint goal is to develop a talent pool of educated and experienced individuals who are prepared to navigate the digital frontier.
