The Human Resource Development Corporation (HRD Corp) will sponsor 1,000 lorry drivers to obtain a Class E licence and goods driver licence (GDL).

Transport Minister Anthony Loke told reporters after chairing the National Logistics Task Force (NLTF) meeting on Friday (May 17) that the initiative was a collaboration between the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Human Resources to enable more people to be trained as lorry drivers and get a higher salary return.
