PUTRAJAYA – The Communications and Multimedia Ministry (KKMM) must be prepared to cope with changes brought about by the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) through the formulation of new policies and regulations.
Its Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Jailani Johari said the Industry 4.0 brought various new technologies that were disruptive.
“KKMM must be prepared with a more fresh approach in the formulation of new policies and revolutions (to cope with changes brought about by the Industry 4.0),” he said in his speech at the ministry’s Excellent Service Award (APC) ceremony at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre here today.
On the coming 14th General Election, Jailani, who is also Hulu Terengganu member of Parliament, said as civil servants, all KKMM staff should exercise their right and responsibility as a citizen to choose wisely.
“It is difficult to measure sincerity but we are measuring it by looking at the track record of the parties who made promises. If history shows the promises that have been made a long time ago could not be fulfilled, so be careful with the promises of the new manifesto. Be careful with those who promise the moon and the stars,” he said.
A total of 685 KKMM staff from seven departments and agencies namely the Broadcasting Department, Information Department, the Special Affairs Department, the Tun Abdul Razak Broadcasting and Information Institute, Personal Data Protection Department, the Malaysian National News Agency (Bernama) and the National Film Development Corporation received the APC 2017 today.
Meanwhile, secretary-general of the ministry Tan Sri Dr Sharifah Zarah Syed Ahmad when met by reporters after the event said all KKMM staff should be prepared to learn new knowledge, skills and technology in order to face the Industry 4.0.
“This is to ensure that all parties are well prepared to face the Industry 4.0 and no one is left behind,” she said. – BERNAMA
