Public-private partnership essential to get things moving again, says Tok Pa

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed is urging for strong collaborations between the public and private sectors in order to support the nation’s economy.

“We want to sustain the country’s economic growth. Therefore, we need to take the advantage of the growth opportunity presented by the global digital age to the fullest and to increase our productivity and enhance our competitiveness,” he said in his keynote address during a policy webinar themed “Rebuilding the Economy with Enabling Policies”

Furthermore, he pointed out that Putrajaya aims for public sales and transactions to be made available online by 90 percent or even 100 percent.

“In the current challenges that we’re facing, it has motivate us to move even faster from this journey of digital society or fully digital society,” Bernama quoted him.

The panel further highlighted the importance of an enabling policy infrastructure to accelerate economic reboot post Covid-19.
