Mentri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad said so far, 29 out of the 51 initiatives under Johor’s economic stimulus package has been implemented.
“We managed to implement 57% of our initiatives to help revive the state’s economy.
“We hope to implement the other 22 initiatives by the end of the year,” he said, adding apart from the economic stimulus package, there were 183 other initiatives under the state’s 2020 budget to spur growth.
Hasni stressed the state government was committed to ensuring the state was administered well to enable the people to prosper.
“Towards this end, we have set a key performance index (KPI) for all 10 state executive councillors to meet,” he said, adding that he was satisfied with their performances thus far.
Hasni said he was kept informed via briefings from the state executive councillors on their various portfolios and initiatives implemented, like at a two-day special KPI meeting on July 19 and 20.
“It is important that initiatives taken to benefit the people are carried out well and the target met,” he said, adding state government officers must constantly monitor the progress.
He said during the meeting, they discussed the importance of carrying out projects that have a positive impact on Johoreans.
“We are giving importance to enhancing our digital economy, ensuring mega projects are completed and there is adequate food supply in the state, including setting up food hubs in the districts and extending help to farmers to increase their production,” said Hasni.
Among major projects costing billions of ringgit taking shape in Johor include the 192km double-tracking project between Gemas and Johor Baru and soon-to-be launched Johor Baru-Singapore Rapid Transit System.
