IPOH: Civil servants in Perak should practise the "take pride and take ownership" principle, says Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu (pic).
The Perak Mentri Besar said this did not mean that one must be proud of the position one held. Rather, one must be proud with the responsibilities one has been entrusted with.
Ahmad cited the example of the Japanese who worked really hard because they were proud to serve their country, eben when holding low-ranking jobs.
“Thus, I would like to urge all parties, leaders and civil servants alike, to put aside whatever differences in an effort to bring Perak back to its glory days, ” he said in his speech during the executive talk held at the state secretariat building here on Tuesday (Jan 21).
Ahmad said apart the "take pride" principle, there other principles to bear in mind included "rethink","big data","strengthening of delivery system through digital initiatives" and “collective action on climate change".
‘We must rethink our methods in development plans so that projects that bring positive impact to the public must be continued, while for the rest we must look for new approaches.
“Our plans and development must also be in accordance with data-driven decision-making, ” he added.
Ahmad said the state would be drafting the Perak Development Plan 2021-2025, and each civil servant must find a way to help enchance the state's achievements.
