KUALA LUMPUR ― Civil servants at all levels should always have a sense of urgency in carrying out their respective duties, Public Service Department (PSD) director-general Datuk Seri Borhan Dolah said.

He said having this attitude was important to ensure plans recently presented in the Mid-Term Review on the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) and Budget 2019 can be implemented successfully.

“The implementation of policies under these two agendas is critical in this ever increasing challenging global economy.The question is how are we in the course of steering the ship and administrative machinery going to take on this challenge,” he said in his speech at the opening of a forum on MP11 Mid-Term Review and Post-Budget 2019: An Analysis, yesterday.

His speech was read out by PSD deputy director-general (Operation) Datuk Suhaimie Mahbar.

The annual closed forum organised since 2006 by the Economic Studies and Public Finance Cluster of the National Public Administration Institute was attended by civil service officers from various agencies. ― Bernama
