Invitation to Participate in IPPBM Research
Two researchers from Universiti Teknologi MARA, one of whom, Prof Dr Normah Omar, Director of the Accounting Research Institute (ARI) have been invited by the Malaysian Institute For Research in Youth Development (IPPBM) to participate in a national research which aims to explore the potential of making sports as an industry in Malaysia. IPPBM is the research arm of the Ministry of Sports and Youth. A total of fifteen selected researchers from public and private universities in Malaysia were briefed on the "Terms of Reference" for the project. Based on the current facilities as well as the amount of investment allocated by the government on sport-related activities, the potential to develop a sport industry is indeed viable.
