PUTRAJAYA: Staff of the Prime Minister’s Department must be honest, of high integrity and be efficient in their work as almost all of the country’s policies are made by the department, said Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Prime Minister pointed to the National Security Council which deals with security matters and Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed who is overlooking the implementation of the 12th Malaysia Plan.

Issues concerning the people of Sabah and Sarawak are also handled and resolved by the department, added Ismail Sabri.

“That is why we need to be good at our work to set a good example to other ministries.

“We must show to the people that we work hard for them. We must be honest, trustworthy and perfect in executing our work.

“Being the place where almost all of the government’s policies are made, all eyes are on JPM,” he said at a gathering with the department staff on Tuesday (Jan 25).

This is Ismail Sabri’s first meeting with the JPM staff since he took office in August last year.

The usual monthly assembly where the Prime Minister would address the department’s heads and staff could not be held due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Ismail Sabri said it was important for policies set by the government to be executed fast and effectively as the people want to feel the benefits of it.

“I hope that staff of the Prime Minister’s Department will support the implementation of policies so that it can be felt, experienced and enjoyed by the people,” he said.

The Prime Minister also called on the department staff to help promote the Malaysian Family concept, adding that he observed the promotion of the concept among agencies in the department was lacking.

“JPM should be leading in promoting the concept but I can see a lack of participation among agencies and departments here.

“How can I ask other ministries and agencies to support the Malaysian Family idea if we, as hosts, do not do it. I hope for better cooperation from all of you,” he said.
