KLUANG: The Human Resource Ministry is targetting to get jobs for more than 90,000 housewives this year under the ‘1Malaysia Support For Housewives’ programme.

Its deputy minister, Datuk Maznah Mazlan, said the programme, introduced by the government through the blue ocean strategy, was not only aimed at providing supplementary income for them, but also improve their family economy.
