Muhyiddin meeting participants during an interactive session with young administrative and diplomatic officers in Putrajaya on Friday.

PUTRAJAYA: The Government will always recognise and appreciate the contributions of civil servants in helping Malaysia achieve success at the international level, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

He said the world's recognition of Malaysia's achievements, including being ranked 10th in the 2011 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index, and 12th in the list of most competitive countries in doing business, was proof of the civil servants' contributions.

"The government's achievements today are mainly due to the performance of civil servants.

"Therefore, unlike the opposition which ridicules the contributions made by civil servants to national development, the government has always appreciated the contributions of those in the public service.

"The opposition will not recognise the country's achievements if they are not beneficial to them because recognising the achievements would mean that they recognise the success of the Barisan Nasional-led government.

"That is the opposition's strategy, to deny our achievements. They have to understand that the country's achievements are the result of the policies and cooperation with the civil servants," he told a news conference.

Muhyiddin also said the collaboration between the political leadership and civil servants had succeeded in producing good national policies on the economy, social service and education, as well as domestic and international services. He rapped the opposition for what he said was their tendency to reject proposals even if they were good and would benefit the people.

Earlier, Muhyiddin called on the young administrative and diplomatic officers to think outside the box to improve their efficiency to develop the public service sector and provide the best service to the people. - Bernama
