BEIJING: Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has highlighted to Malaysians here about the government's efforts in combating corruption.
The Deputy Prime Minister said the setting up of the National Centre for Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption (GIACC) has proven their commitment in this.
"The National Anti-Corruption Plan 2019-2023 is to ensure that Malaysia is heading towards a corruption-free nation.
"We also made all Members of Parliament to declare their assets," she said in her speech at a gathering with Malaysians here on Monday (July 8) night.
Addressing to some 150 working adults and students, she welcomed suggestions from them to help the country grow.
"You can all criticise, but it (the criticism) has to be constructive," she added.
Dr Wan Azizah said restructuring of government agencies, cost cutting and the people's welfare were also part of the priority agenda of the Pakatan Harapan government.
"To rebuild the country again, the economy engine must be generated and we need to have savings.
"We want to save our country, this is what we are sure, as Malaysians," she added.
She promised that the government would do its best to lower the cost of living for the sake of the people.
There are about 14,000 Malaysians in China, with some 2,000 working or studying in the Chinese capital. Dr Wan Azizah is on her first working visit to China.
