KUALA LUMPUR: The Madani government’s one year anniversary programme will be expanded to every district nationwide, says Fahmi Fadzil.
The Communications and Digital Minister said the programme serves as the best platform for the people to observe and understand the implementation of policies, initiatives and achievements of the unity government during its first year in office.
He said the programme, held at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium grounds from today until Sunday, might not be easily accessible for those outside the Klang Valley.
“I have requested the Information Department to arrange a similar programme on a smaller scale in every district,” he said when appearing as a guest on the Malaysia Hari Ini programme aired on TV3 yesterday, Bernama reported.
Fahmi said it would involve the participation of all ministries, agencies and government-linked companies (GLC).
“Our booth will highlight the aspect of digital economy, which is vital for the country’s economic growth.
“We will also address digital literacy issues, including public understanding of data security, scam prevention and secure transactions,” he said.
Other activities include Madani Mega Sale, Rahmah Sales, lucky draws and a career carnival.
The three-day programme, from 9am to 10pm, will focus on three components, namely the achievement showcase, the people’s touchpoint service and the people’s well-being initiatives.
With a target of 200,000 visitors, the programme is also aimed at increasing public awareness and understanding of the government’s direction and goals, as well as building trust and confidence through periodic achievement reporting method.
Various services will be available, including counters set up by the police for traffic summons payment, registration counters for the Rahmah Cash Aid and Cuti-Cuti Cikgu holiday programme, as well as counters for unclaimed money.
Each ministry will set up booths with special programmes such as breast and cervical cancer screenings, mobile dental and general health clinics, counters to reprint public examination certificates and free health screenings.
The event will also see exhibitions featuring assets from the Malaysian Armed Forces, Malaysian Civil Defence Force and Fire and Rescue Department.
