Now we have a new ministry for Communication. It’s called Information, Communications and Culture Ministry. No, I did not wrote it wrong, I did say CULTURE Ministry.
It took me a while to write this post because I was still thinking. How would Culture blend with Information and Communications? Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has elected Dato’ Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim, 67, as the Minister of Information, Communications and Culture(pict.).
No offense but I am seriously tired about all these joke. In my opinion, this country needs a new leadership especially when a Communication Ministry does not have Digital Native. With this new Kementerian who can sing and dance now, WE ARE NOW A FEW STEPS BEHIND.
This quote was taken from the MalaysianInsider:
“This experiment, which took the communications industry by surprise, could see the nation’s broadband goals set back by as much as five years, say bemused but not amused industry sources.
That is how long it could take to sort out merger issues, such as alignment of corporate culture, and integrate the various organisations and processes and get the new minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim, who previously looked after foreign affairs and culture, arts and heritage, up to speed on things like spectrum management and broadband competition regulation.”
Isn’t it a time for the Information, Communication and Technology to stand on its own? All these are related to each other and if we don’t do this now then when?
As for now, which comes first? Arts, Batik & Joget or MEET OUR NATIONAL BROADBAND AGENDA(Ongkili: Broadband rollout slow)?
Note: KTAK is now known as Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air.
