Penang Is The First State Government That Practices Open Competitive Tenders, An Achievement That Earned Commendation From Transparency International.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 7.1.2018.

Penang is the first state government in Malaysia to implement the practice of open competitive tenders, an achievement that earned commendation from Transparency International(TI). Irresponsible elements ignore this excellent record when trying to run down and smear the state government’s image that there is no open tender system.

Open competitive tender system is one of the mainstays of CAT governance in Penang of competency, accountability and transparency, that has allowed the state government to record savings in expenditures. Open competitive tender system is one of the principal factors that led to annual Budget surpluses since 2008, a doubling of our asset reserves and a record 90% reduction of state government debt that allows Penang to have the lowest debts in the country.

For the first 6 months of 2017, Penang topped the investment charts in Malaysia with RM7.7 billion and 8,162 new jobs.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 7.1.2018.

I wish to clarify my comments yesterday, which reported me stating that there will be no worker retrenchments in Penang, in reference to Malaysian Employers Federation(MEF)’s expectation of 50,000 retrenchments of workers in 2018. This is not correct. What I meant is that any worker retrenchments in Penang will not affect Penang, because there will be more jobs chasing workers than worker chasing jobs. Penang has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the Malaysia at 2%.

移交2018制度化拨款予12所华中

槟州首席部长林冠英致词稿

时间过得真快,十年光景一晃就过。在这段岁月里,槟州政府秉持能干、公信、透明的施政方针,贯彻廉洁施政,一步一脚印地走过多少风雨路,才能赢得全民的支持。我记得当我们宣布落实制度化拨款时外界的质疑声四起,2009年第一年实行时,华校及教会学校事务协调委员会在那时候只收到约88%学校的申请。然而,州政府十年来坚守承诺,除了每年年头准时发放拨款外,所拨的款项更是有增无减,因此,增强各界尤其是华社对州政府的信心,甚至把制度化拨款视为学校发展的后盾。 Continue reading “移交2018制度化拨款予12所华中”

On behalf of the Penang State Government, I am delighted to be present here today at the Re-Dedication of the Church of the Assumption and the Launch of the Roman Catholic Museum, Diocese of Penang on the very first day of the year 2018.

The “Never Say Die” Spirit Of The Penang People Will Let Us Bounce Back From Setbacks To Allow Penang To Be On Course To Be A Developed Economy And The First Green State In Malaysia In 5 Years.(e/c)

Penang 2018 New Year Day Message By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 1.1.2018.

The “never say die” spirit of the Penang people will let us bounce back from setbacks to allow Penang to be on course to be a developed economy and the first green state in Malaysia in 5 years. This spirit is evident from the worst natural disaster in history on 4-5 November 2017, when a heavy rainstorm lashed Penang with 40 mph winds that lifted a ferry up from the sea and pushed it inland, and 372 mm or one and a half months of rain fell in a mere 15 hours.
