JEDDAH: Malaysians in Saudi Arabia have been asked to help the government rebuild the country following the change in government last year.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (pic) said they could give constructive suggestions to help implement more effective policies.
“Rebuilding the country after all that has happened is not easy, but it is possible.
“We have to fix the situation, but at the same time continue reviving our economic growth to benefit the people,” she said at a breaking-of-fast event with the Malaysian diaspora here on Thursday.
Dr Wan Azizah said they could also become the country’s “ambassadors” in disseminating correct information about Malaysia to the people in Saudi Arabia.
Also present were her husband, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Foreign Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah.
Dr Wan Azizah is leading a Malaysian delegation to the 14th Session of the Islamic Summit Conference (OIC Summit) which began yesterday.
The summit will deliberate on the 10 Year Plan of Action 2016-2025, with the objective of addressing the diverse challenges facing the ummah. — Bernama
