PUTRAJAYA, Feb 13 (Bernama) — The government will continuously explore new ideas and approach to identify effective ways to solve problems and ensure efficient service to the people.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the government’s administration was always in search of ways to achieve a positive outcome through an effective and efficient management within a minimum allocation.
“What we aspire through the support of our partners in the administration is to be focused and committed to provide unwavering service to the people,” said Najib at the Prime Minister Department’s monthly gathering in Dataran Perdana here today.
Najib said whatever services rendered must reach the target group – the people – so that the people can enjoy such services in the spirit of the ‘1Malaysia concept of People First, Performance Now.”
He said the government was now focused on problem solving because there are cross-cutting issues that need problem solving as a means of effective solution compared with the conventional method that may be less effective.
Najib said any approach introduced earlier need not necessarily be maintained just because it has been in place for a long time, instead what was needed is new ideas, creative approach that can provide innovative solutions to problem solving.
The Prime Minister said through the problem solving initiative, many issues can be resolved quickly and effectively through the concerted efforts and commitment of those entrusted.
He said the government would soon launch the Rural Transformation Programme so that rural folks can also enjoy the benefit and changes brought about by the government.
Najib said based on the country’s 5.8 percent economic growth registered in the third quarter of 2011, the country was on the right track to achieve the aspired high income nation status by 2020.
The economy of the country has also blossomed positively since Malaysia recorded the highest total trade of RM1.3 trillion last year, he said.
