PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim launched the new “MADANI Nation” slogan today aimed at guiding and leading the country forward.
MADANI is the Malay acronym for Sustainability, Care and Compassion, Respect, Innovation, Prosperity and Trust.
The MADANI concept will reflect the trust forged between the government and the people based on transparency and cooperation.
“MADANI Nation” replaces “Keluarga Malaysia” tagline of the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The prime minister said, policy makers, leaders in the ministries and national agencies want to know where the Unity Government is heading this year and in the future.
“This MADANI concept has been formulated to map out a strategy to govern the country effectively. The country will develop based on MADANI,” Anwar said in his speech at the “Developing a Madani Nation” event held at Putrajaya International Convention Center (PICC) today.
Also present at the event were Deputy Prime Ministers, Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, cabinet ministers and senior government officials.
The Prime Minister added, while moving towards development, all responsible parties should not forget about the humanitarian values. They should not be easily lured to compromise easily, become permissive and also continue with corrupt practices.
The Tambun Member of Parliament has also pointed out that the government cannot use data as the main basis to solve the people’s problem but instead the whole situation must be taken into consideration.
He said, for example the current inflation is at 4 per cent while the food inflation has reached 7 per cent. The data could not help the people much as it must be based on humanitarian economy.
“The old system used was as if there was no machinery that could detect new companies formed that had practiced unfair systems. This had happened without political control,” he added.
Anwar said, if the system that had been used for decades could be improved by the politicians and the civil servants then the government could save between RM5billion to RM6 billion without implementing new incentives.
“This amount of money could be collected through detailed and transparent enforcements by the authorities responsible in the government,” he reiterated. –Malaysia World News
