He said the five aspects would become important factors in the key performance Index set to evaluate the achievement of all state government agencies.
“One of the 5K elements which is seen as crucial is the aspect of coordination especially between state government agencies to ensure services and assistance to the people are delivered quickly and the element should be improved from time to time.
“Two-way communication between agencies is important to avoid ‘communication breakdown’ and communication should involve all levels of a state government agency,” he told reporters after attending the Malacca Chief Minister’s Message Presentation, here today.
Sulaiman said the Malacca government is also introducing a new mission called Teras which encompasses the elements of technology, entrepreneurship, industrial and economic revolution, international and well-being.

“For the element of international, we will enhance the tourism industry quality and uniqueness towards world standard while the element of well-being would stress on the state’s environment so that it is clean, beautiful, sustainable, safe, comfortable for better quality of life for the people,” he said.
He said the state government also outlined 17 sustainable development objectives as a guide to free the state of hardcore poor and hunger while improving health, prosperity, education, employment and economic development while conserving the sea and land of the state.
In another development, he said the 7,553 state government employees would be receiving a special assistance of RM500 each which would be paid at the end of July.
