najib_gtp_etp_600KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Najib Razak said today that all programmes planned under the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) and Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) were running smoothly and producing positive outcomes.
According to him, the implementation of GTP and ETP were done based on feedback after consulting all levels of society.
“The efforts in GTP and ETP is proof that the government is not arbitrarily sitting cross-legged. In the simple terms of the young nowadays, what the government administration is doing is not personal indulgence.
“This has been the basis of my leadership. Engaging and understanding the needs of the rakyat (people) is paramount in guiding me to deliver the right programmes for all Malaysians,” he said when launching the 2014 GTP and ETP reports here tonight, which was broadcast live by RTM.
The first horizon of the GTP (GTP 1.0) was from 2010 to 2012, GTP 2.0 from 2012 to the end of this year while GTP 3.0 and onwards will determine the developed nation status for Malaysia.
The GTP has seven National Key Result Areas (NKRA), namely – Tackling The Cost of Living of the people; Boosting Rural Development; Upgrading Urban Public Transportation; Boosting the Standard of Living of Low Income Households; Ensuring Quality Education; Reducing Crime and Eradicating Corruption.
The reports presented tonight was the true story of achievements which were supported by facts, data and legitimate figures.
“Most importantly, all that is recorded and contained in the GTP and ETP reports…all are based on facts and figures, which are recognised by numerous quarters, whether at national level or international, specifically audited by certified auditors. Meaning, we don’t concoct the figures and digits,” Najib said.
Najib also said he was raising this point because the government had been attacked and criticised vehemently by certain quarters lately.
“It is the way of the world, that, to meet the wants and demands of every quarter in whatever matter, is an impossible thing, and not human. Only Allah the creator is perfect,” he said.
He said the success of the Performance Management & Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) in supervising the implementation of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) and Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) had attracted the attention of several countries, who were now adopting the model and consultation services of PEMANDU.
The Prime Minister also outlined five main indicators in the implementation of GTP and ETP to the entire nation in the five years they were implemented from 2010.
Firstly, he said, the per capita income of the people rose from USD7,059 in 2009, to USD10,426 in 2014; secondly, investment remained high with RM142 billion in 2009 and RM228 billion last year.
He added, other indicators were the creation of 1.5 million new jobs as of 2014 in the NKRA sectors since 2010 and that more than five million people in rural areas had received basic facilities such as electricity and supply of clean water since GTP and ETP were implemented.
In addition, almost 170,000 poor people had escaped poverty as a result of the increase in their income in the last five years.
Najib said that for 2014, the overall KPI for NKRA exceeded 105 per cent while the overall KPI for NKEA exceeded the target, at 110 per cent.
The Prime Minister also gave his assurance that the government always heard the criticisms of the people and very much welcomed the views and opinions of all groups so as to develop the nation together.
“But, it must be remembered, whatever form of criticism and suggestions, must be constructive and not reckless or hastily made because only with constructive criticisms and suggestions, can we correct, reform and improve shortcomings and weaknesses existing here and there,” he said.
Najib also urged the people to think rationally and not be swayed by emotions in judging the government and the government’s noble efforts all this while.
He also urged the people to steer clear of all disputes and instead look for similarities for the sake of the country’s prosperity.
“Despite encountering a thousand obstacles, even when we are attacked and criticised, as a transparent government, as Prime Minister, I, with the Deputy Prime Minister and backed by the Cabinet and colleagues in the administration, will not ever deviate or admit defeat, but will continue diligently to lead the country and continue to struggle, pioneer a million more roads in serving the people and country,” he added.
