PETALING JAYA: Deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak emphasised that the “One Malaysia” concept mooted by him was to recognise the contributions made by Malaysians of all races, including Chinese Malaysians, towards the development of this country.
He also said the Chinese version of his blog (www.1malaysia.com.my) would go online soon, during his visit to Sin Chew Daily Tuesday.
Prior to his swearing-in as the country’s sixth prime minister, Najib made a personal visit to Sin Chew Daily headquarters in Petaling Jaya on Tuesday and had a warm fellowship with senior managers of Sin Chew Media Corporation Berhad.
Najib said he already had a set of national reform agendas in mind, and urged Malaysians to evaluate him based on his actions, not rumours or stereotyped impressions.
He stressed that he would honour his pledges and dedicate himself to nation-building through political and economic developments.
He said although Malaysia was currently facing grim political and economic challenges, the country could resolve all its existing problems and be transported to yet another pinnacle of development, if Malaysians would work hand in hand and stay united towards their common goal.
Najib said he would be meeting representatives from various sectors and backgrounds soon and listen to what they have to say.
“I hope I can get the support from not only within the government, but also outside the government, including the media.”
“I am looking forward to a long-lasting, fruitful and productive relationship.”
Listening to the rakyat
As the administrative head, he said he would maintain good working relationship with the corporate sector, as this would produce mutually beneficial effects.
He said he wanted to know the expectations and demands towards the government from Malaysians of all races.
Sworn in this Friday
Meanwhile, Najib declined to comment on the upcoming Cabinet reshuffle, citing the reason that he had yet to be officially sworn-in as the prime minister.
Although he refused to confirm he would be sworn-in this Friday, from what we have found out, several Cabinet ministers have received invitations this morning for the swearing-in cermony to be held at Istana Negara at 10.00 a.m. this Friday (3 April). (Translated by DOMINIC LOH/Sin Chew Daily)
