Internet communications development: the way forward
Salleh Said Keruak
It is gratifying that YB Gobind Singh Deo, the new Minister of Communications and Multimedia, has immediately laid down his plans for the future, which incudes faster Internet at half the price. That is precisely the direction most countries are moving in this age when the Internet is the backbone of banking and commerce.
We must not always politicise government policies and whenever the previous policies work they should be continued and whenever the new government policies are sound we must also support them in the spirit of non-partisan. Even more important is the policy to liberalise the media and communications industry and to allow free access to information as part of education and nation-building.
