IPOH: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was announced that the salary of the 120 public administrators will be increased with the requirement of their productivity being improved to build a high-income nation.
This is sound great for the citizens, but what do our citizens think of the announcement?
Lee Li Qing, as a hawker said that the increase salary can motivate the performance of public administrators, and can help Malaysia become the high-income nation.
“It would be good news if the government can increase the salary of public officials according with their performance. When I went to the Immigration Office for my passport matters, I realized that the effectiveness and efficiency of the public administrators have been improved a lot."
However, Lo You Chong, as retired said that an effective policy must begin with the fundamental base, such as offering the job training programmes, inserting the values for them during their working.
"Offer the prizes for the public officials can act as a motivation for them, but it was not an effective way to enhance their productivity. I think that educated the employees is the most important matters."
