Pemandu to review all public feedback
KUALA LUMPUR: Pemandu will review and incorporate all public feedback on the Government Transformation Programme's (GTP) initiatives before the final plan is unveiled later this year, said Datuk Seri Idris Jala.
The Pemandu CEO said public feedback was highly valued in rolling out the initiatives because it helped determine what the rakyat really wanted.
He said the Government was about to embark on the GTP Roadmap 2.0, which would further refine the initiatives rolled out under the seven National Key Result Areas (NKRAs) in 2010.
“Our aim in engaging with the public is to bring about transformational changes by ensuring that their feedback, needs and aspirations are taken into consideration.
“In doing so, we are always open, transparent and accountable to them in our actions,” said Jala at the GTP Roadmap 2.0 Open Day at the KL Convention Centre yesterday.
The open day saw thousands flocking to the NKRA booths to learn and provide feedback about the GTP 2.0's proposed initiatives, which will focus on reducing crime, corruption and poverty, and boost the country's economic and social development.
They interacted with lab leaders, who comprised top government officials, to find out how the initiatives would be implemented.
The seven NKRAs are Reducing Crime, Fighting Corruption, Addressing the Rising Cost of Living, Improving Rural Development, Raising Living Standards of Low-Income Households, Improving Urban Public Transport and Assuring Quality Education.
Copywriter Henry Fong, 33, said he was glad GTP 2.0 would focus heavily on crime prevention.
“I think feeling safe is a key part of being a citizen. Whether it is perception or not doesn't matter as long as people feel safe,” he said.
Two more GTP Roadmap 2.0 open days will be held at Pullman Hotel in Kuching (Aug 10) and Sutera Harbour Resort in Kota Kinabalu (Aug 14) from 8am to 4pm.
