PUTRAJAYA, Tues. - The famously slow, sluggish process of form- filling

and queuing at government service counters came in for a real dressing
down today - from none other than the Prime Minister himself.

"Things need to be improved... we are not using typewriters now but

computers. This should make them (government agencies) efficient," Datuk

Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.

He said there was no excuse for the agencies not to have an efficient

delivery system as the Government had invested greatly in equipping them

with up-to-date technology.
