Civil servants should inculcate creativity, says Shahrizat


KUALA LUMPUR: Civil servants need to inculcate creativity and innovation in their work to drive Malaysia towards becoming an innovative and knowledge-based country, said Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.

She said without innovation and creativity, changes implemented will have a slow or no effect on the public.

“We must not be scared to make changes or else we will be left behind.

“All government ministries and agencies need to compete to make these changes.

“Innovative changes will be accepted positively by the community, and agencies need to support this concept,” she said while speaking at the launching of the ministry’s Innovation Day 2010, here yesterday. — Bernama
