Print Email

PEKAN, April 9 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today the rural areas would be the focus of the transformational development process to ensure that the people there progressed in tandem with their urban counterparts.
He said the government did not concentrate only on specific areas but ensured that development was comprehensive and met the people's needs.
"I want to see tranformational development take place not only in the Klang Valley but also in the rural areas.
"In other words, let's not have people not benefiting from the transformation, because the development is comprehensive and brings prosperity to the country," he said at the presentation of keys to homes to 130 families at the Pekan agropolitan project, here.
Also present were Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob and East Coast Economic Corridor Development Council (ECERDC) chief executive officer Datuk Jebasingam Issace John.
Najib said development in the rural areas had been going on since the launch of the Red Book programme introduced by his father and second prime minister, the late Tun Abdul Razak Hussein.
"The people must feel the transformation because the benefits can elevate their standard of living," he said.
