TAWAU: All Barisan Nasional policies are designed to bring about a better life for the people, says Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

The Prime Minister said these policies were realistic and could be implemented, and were not fictitious.

“We cannot make promises about something that we cannot fulfil or realise, for then this would be from the world of fantasy. We want something that can be a reality.

“An example is the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC), a concept of delivering services that has yet to be implemented by any other country in the world,” he said when opening the Tawau UTC yesterday.

“It is recognised by the World Bank and by other international organisations as unique, because almost all the important central and state government departments are brought under one roof and operate seven days a week from 8am to 9pm,” he said.

Najib said services such as the UTC could never be implemented even in developed countries.

“They have a saying ‘never on a Sunday’, which means they do not work on the weekend.

“However, in Malaysia, we still provide government services to the people,” he said.

Also present at the launch were Najib’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman, Deputy Chief Ministers Datuk Seri Yahya Hussin and Datuk Seri Raymond Tan Shu Kiah and Sabah State Assembly Speaker Datuk Syed Abas Syed Ali.

The Prime Minister said the Tawau UTC was built in about 10 weeks at a cost of about RM30mil. — Bernama
