Blue Ocean Strategy covers more than 50 departments, agencies

18th January, 2013

KUALA LUMPUR: The cooperation between the police and armed forces under the Blue Ocean Strategy launched yesterday, involved more than 50 government departments and agencies, said Chief Secretary to the Government Datuk Seri Dr Ali Hamsa.

He said the government had saved substantial costs with the implementation of the strategy involving the sharing of infrastructure and facilities, among others.

“We have already saved RM200 million as we did not have to build a training centre for the police which would be sharing the facility with the army.

“That is only one project, imagine how much we could save in other projects,” he told reporters after presenting his keynote address on ‘Changes and Government Transformation under Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’ yesterday.

The function, organised by the Malaysian Management Institute, was attended by more than 200 participants, including businessmen, those from the private sector and government retirees.

Ali said, about 50 projects were being implemented under the Blue Ocean Strategy, one of which was the Urban Transformation Centre in Melaka that could accommodate 73 government departments and agencies.

Another Blue Ocean Strategy innovation was the 1Malaysia One Call Centre launched in Putrajaya recently, where the people could contact 17 agencies, via, one number 03-80008000.

Meanwhile, he said the name of the new health secretary-general to replace Datuk Seri Dr Hasan Abdul Rahman, who was found guilty of close proximity with his partner last November, would be announced in a week’s time.
