“All processes, actions and policies of PSMJ 2035 will be implemented through a combination of ‘bottom-up’ and ‘top-down’ approaches. This plan also serves as the main reference document for all agencies towards key performance goals to achieve administrative excellence for every agency in Melaka,” he said at the state government monthly assembly and PSMJ 2035 launching ceremony here today.
He also said that PSMJ 2035 would, among other things, drive and boost economic growth, encourage domestic and foreign investment, enhance the tourism sector, infrastructure development and heritage restoration, and increase human capital through education.
