Pak Lah, agaknya tajuk di atas lebih sesuai jika ditulis "85% Projek Umnoputra dibuat oleh orang lain"? Pak Lah! Bzzz....!
Study Shows 85 Per Cent Of Bumi Contractor Projects Goes To Others
BANGI, Feb 13 (Bernama) - Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said tonight a study by the Works Ministry last year shows that on the average 85.37 per cent of projects secured by Bumiputera contractors goes to the other communities.
Lamenting the outcome of the study, conducted by the ministry's Entrepreneur Development Division, the prime minister said this not only foiled the government's desire to empower Bumiputera contractors but also, in a wider context, undermined the more important Bumiputera agenda to ensure the country achieved progress and stability in the long term.
"They do not want to work; do not want to learn, and give little importance to the opportunities provided by the government," he said in his speech at a dinner of the Implementation Coordination Unit of the Prime Minister's Department, here.
The text of Abdullah's speech was read out by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Abdullah said a community that lags behind must foster the realisation to change and learn to improve itself.
