KUALA UMPUR, 18 Julai (Bernama) -- Gagasan Badan Ekonomi Melayu (GABEM)

meminta kerajaan mengambil langkah yang lebih agresif dalam memastikan usaha

memajukan ekonomi Bumiputera sebagai usaha yang berterusan.

Pengerusinya Tan Sri Rahim Tamby Chik berkata ekonomi Bumiputera tidak akan

terbela selagi kerajaan tidak memberi perhatian yang serius dan berterusan

terhadap usaha-usaha memajukannya.

"Hanya dengan cara ini kita akan dapat mengelakkan suasana di mana ekonomi

negara dikuasai oleh kaum minoriti berbanding kaum majoriti," katanya pada

sidang media di sini hari ini.

Dalam mencapai hasrat ini, GABEM mencadangkan beberapa langkah, termasuk

pemantauan oleh Majlis Tindakan Agenda Bumiputera (MTAB) supaya penyertaan

Bumiputera dalam ekonomi adalah menyeluruh dan meliputi peringkat negeri dan

daerah.

"Dalam pemerhatian GABEM, kekuatan Barisan Nasional pada masa ini adalah

bertunjangkan sokongan daripada penduduk di luar bandar di negeri dan daerah

yang mempunyai bilangan pengundi Melayu dan Bumiputera yang besar.

"Namun, sebahagian besar peruntukan kerajaan untuk memajukan Bumiputera

tertumpu kepada usahawan-usahawan yang besar di peringkat pusat yang bilangannya

kecil," katanya.

Beliau berkata perpaduan Bumiputera yang lebih kukuh dapat diwujudkan

sekiranya kerajaan, dalam tempoh beberapa tahun akan datang, berjaya

meningkatkan ekonomi orang Melayu.

Rahim berkata GABEM sendiri telah merangka beberapa program baharu yang

lebih jelas dan menyeluruh dengan memberi tumpuan kepada majoriti usahawan di

peringkat akar umbi.

Katanya program berbentuk revolusioner yang mampu mengubah senario

ekonomi bangsa dalam masa yang singkat, termasuk ''Satu Keluarga Satu Syarikat

(1K1S) dan Syarikat Teras Negeri (STN).

"1K1S bertujuan menggalakkan setiap keluarga Melayu dan Bumiputera memiliki

sekurang-kurangnya sebuah syarikat untuk menjinakkan mereka dengan budaya

keusahawanan di peringkat permulaan.

"Pada fasa pertama, GABEM menyasarkan sekurang-kurangnya 30 syarikat

ditubuhkan di setiap negeri menerusi program ini," katanya.

Bagi program STN pula, Rahim berkata program ini diwujudkan untuk menampung

kekosongan program untuk kumpulan usahawan kecil dan sederhana (PKS) di

peringkat negeri dan daerah.

"GABEM, dengan kerjasama agensi-agensi kewangan yang berkaitan, akan

mencungkil PKS-PKS yang berdaya maju untuk diberikan bimbingan, galakan dan

bantuan supaya mereka boleh meningkat dengan lebih cepat.

"Menerusi fasa pertama, sekurang-kurangnya 50 syarikat berdaya maju

dikenal pasti di setiap negeri," katanya.
