About the Secretariat for Empowerment of Indian Entrepreneurs (SEED)

The Secretariat for Empowerment of Indian Entrepreneurs (SEED) is a unit that has been established under the Indian Community ETP Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department. This unit was mandated by the Honorable Prime Minister, YAB DATO' SRI MOHD. NAJIB BIN TUN HAJI ABDUL RAZAK, to help undertake the initiatives announced by him under the Malaysian Indian Economic Conference (MIEC) Blueprint, which is a result of the successful MIEC forums that took place nationwide between the months of March to June 2012.

During the MIEC programs, all the stakeholders came together – the chambers of commerce, Indian trade organizations and associations, political parties, NGO’s and civil society, with a common goal of wanting to see this initiative succeed. This had then lead us in 2012 to organize 9 programs throughout the country that attracted over 12,000 entrepreneurs. This town hall like forums served as a powerful platform for exchange of ideas, cross pollination of initiatives and eventual discussion on what works and what doesn’t. It was demand driven and initiated by the government involving the community at the ground level. This in itself was a fresh approach.

From these forums a formulary of ideas were put together and presented to the Prime Minister who then announced a series of initiatives for the Malaysia Indian community at the grand finale event on the 9th of June 2012.

YAB Prime Minister then enveloped these announcement that a newly formed secretariat under his office will drive, monitor and taken them to the next level. The SEED Secretariat was born on the 1st of August 2012. 

The ethos of the SEED Secretariat is based on the primary objective of creating sustainable systems change. In a continuum between the public sector at one end and the private sector at the other, the SEED Secretariat is positioned somewhere in the middle. This we intend to achieve by working together with institutions, networks, and the Malaysian Indian community, where we can create solutions that are efficient, sustainable, transparent, and have measurable impact. We measures performance not in the profits we generate but our ultimate aim is to measure the positive “returns” we bring to the society.

SEED has been able to achieve this by working together with the government, institutions, networks, and together with the Malaysian Indian community, we can create solutions that are efficient, sustainable, and transparent and having measurable impact.
