Engineers in demand

Today The Star says:

"Malaysia short of engineers"

According to Institute Of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) president Prof Chuan Hean Teik, in receiving wawasan 2020, 200 000 engineers are in need. The current figure is only 60 000, which is only 30% of the desired figure. Link to full text.

So, engineering graduates, we guys can still chill out! Unfortunately he didn't go into telling which engineerings face excessive "reactants" and which face otherwise.

For the non-engineering people, "zha shan"--(canto) lar... Obviously, the finance market is at its bottom. Perhaps any of you might have a great idea to twist the situation around! If that happens, you would then be headache as to where to put you notes! Switzerland bank? haha...
