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."
