'Take negative reports in positive light'
KUALA LUMPUR, Mon. - Government departments and agencies should not
regard negative reports against them as "public bashing".
Instead, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said such
reports should be viewed positively and spur them to work harder to
improve the public delivery system.
Speaking at the Prime Minister's Quality Award ceremony tonight,
Abdullah said criticism against the civil service should motivate public
servants to give their best.
"If we just ignore the criticism, we would not know whether what we are
doing is right or wrong."
