PUTRAJAYA – The Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK) needs to be a caring ministry to regain public confidence and trust in the ministry, says its new minister Datuk Hamzah Zainudin.
He said the ministry’s personnel must ensure that the goal could be achieved by making all the 30 million consumers in the country as stakeholders.
“Ensure that these consumers benefit from everything determined by the ministry in the interest of all levels of society,” he said after the handing-over of duty to him by his predecessor Datuk Seri Hasan Malek, here, today.
He said the biggest challenge to be tackled by the ministry was the public’s negative perception of the ministry, especially by the social media.
Hamzah said he was also reminded of this by this predecessor Hasan before handing over the duty of helming the ministry to him.
“Whatever we do, even good, is not being highlighted by them. They only harp on negatives,” he said.
Hamzah said Hasan was committed to his work and was still reminding him on certain issues that had not been resolved yet by the ministry although the latter was no longer heading the ministry. – BERNAMA
