It was an honor to be invited to share insights on the Malysia Madani concept yesterday.

Malaysia Madani represents core values essential for socio-economic resurgence, which go beyond materialism, emphasizing cultural values to address social issues.

The introduction section of the Malaysia Madani concept outlines the development of Malaysia Madani and its alignment with current societal needs, emphasizing the importance of inclusivity, sustainability, and innovation.

Malaysia Madani is committed to promoting social mobility and steering Malaysia towards prosperity. Our diverse society holds immense potential that must be harnessed to create significant value. Policies supporting this include economic policies promoting green technologies and supporting SMEs in adopting sustainable practices, as well as social policies fostering community engagement and participatory decision-making.

Initiatives such as the NETR, NIMP 2030, community engagement programs, and educational reforms are crucial steps toward achieving these goals.

Malaysia Madani highlighted significant impacts and benefits, including job creation in green industries, long-term cost savings through energy efficiency, improved quality of life, enhanced community solidarity, and environmental conservation. These outcomes are achievable through well-structured implementation plans, such as phased rollouts of pilot projects and public-private partnerships, supported by funding mechanisms and training programs.

I hope that my introduction could promote the 7 core values of Madani, which are Sustainability, Prosperity, Innovation, Respect, Trust, and Compassion. These values, deeply embedded in the core principles of Malaysia Madani, are essential for fostering a socio-economic environment where every member of society can thrive.

Put more Buses on the Road instead of Subsidizing HSR

I read with concern on Transport Minister Anthony Loke’s statement that the fate of Singapore-Malaysia High Speed Rail (HSR) project will be decided by fourth quarter of 2024. On top of that, according to the statement, the government officials are not ruling out assistance for the project that carries a price tag of about RM100 billion.

Subsidizing HSR will definitely add to the burden on government’s coffer, especially while the government is still undergoing the painful gestation for East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) – another RM75 billion mega rail project that is slated to be completed by early 2027.

Today, Klang Valley alone is short of 4,000 buses to make the service reliable and efficient. And shockingly, as of last year, only about half of the 1,800 buses are operating because of a lack of bus captains and many buses were under maintenance. Are things turning to be better now?

Shortage of buses causes less passengers to be fed to the rail system. Indeed, it is the main contributing factor to the low ridership of MRT1 and MRT2, as reported by the Auditor General’s report.

On top of this, big cities like Johor Bahru, Melaka, Seremban, Kota Kinabalu and others do not have comprehensive public urban bus services. The old buses have been retired, only to be replaced with more cars, not newer buses.

Assuming by adding 8,000 buses on the road, 4,000 within Klang Valley and another half out of the metropolitan, plus RM1 billion to improve bus stops, walk-ways and bicycle lanes, the total cost is only RM5 billion, or 5% of the total bill of HSR. The good news is that the expansion can be achieved by fostering partnerships with private companies to lower public financing cost, yet ensuring a satisfactory bus frequency, wider coverage and higher comfort level.

Instead of prioritize subsidizing mega projects like HSR, i urge the government to tackle the low-hanging fruits – immediately adding more buses on the road. The focus on first-and-last-mile connectivity will surely connect more rakyat to urban rail network, hence optimize the efficiency of the overall public transport system.

YB I believe we have signed an agreement with Singapore on the HSR before this current government was formed. Backing out a second time will cost us. You should know better.

www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2024/07/17/pm-calls-for-young-scientist-039brigade039-to-drive-ste… "KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim wants 100 young scientists to hold talks in 100 schools to spur students' interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The Prime Minister called for a list of 100 suitable scientists to be drawn up as he was concerned by the lack of interest in STEM subjects as well as the growing divide between urban and rural schools in this area. "Don't view this lightly (as) the rural schools will be left way behind," he said when launching the National Bioeconomy Showcase 2024 here on Wednesday (July 17). Anwar said the lack of interest in STEM should be tackled through a multi-ministry approach that also involves the private sector. "If possible, get 100 scientists from the biotech sector and government agencies to (give these talks) which will benefit our students greatly. "I will give two weeks for a list to be submitted for these scientists to go to 100 selected schools around the country," he added. He suggested that young scientists or PhD holders spend two to three hours once or twice a month to meet up with students in their schools to spur interest in STEM. "That is why I have always appealed to the professionals, ministries and agencies, as well as successful companies, to spend time at selected schools and universities. "The students will be amazed by the abilities of our young scientists," he added. Anwar tasked Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Chang Lih Kang, who was present at the event, to prepare the list. He also asked Chang to work with the Education Ministry on ways to spur interest in STEM subjects. Earlier, Anwar announced an additional RM2mil for the Bio-Based Accelerator (BBA) programme under Chang's ministry. He added that part of the allocation could be used to organise the young scientists' talks in schools. The Prime Minister later witnessed the exchange of 11 memorandums of understanding with a total estimated value of RM1.5bil. In his welcoming speech, Chang said more than 520 biotechnology and bio-based companies are involved in projects with approved investments totalling RM14.3bil, contributing RM37.5bil to the nation's gross domestic product."

www-malaymail-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.malaymail.com/amp/news/life/2024/07/16/malaysias-fir… "KUALA LUMPUR, July 16 — Malaysia’s largest tea producer, Boh, is turning 95 this year. Sprawling over 1,000 hectares of land in Cameron Highlands, Boh owns three tea garden: Boh, Fairlie and Sungei Palas. The Boh Tea Garden is the company’s largest and oldest tea garden and is also home to its first tea factory that was built in the 1930s. It is said that tea bushes can live up to 100 years under ideal conditions like those found in Cameron Highlands. Boh takes its name from the Bohea hills (also called Wuyi Hills) in Fujian Province, where Emperor Shennong of China is believed to have discovered tea. Interestingly, Bohea was also the name of a premium tea grade in early China. The word "boh” also means precious happiness in the Mandarin language. Life at the tea gardens, however, was not always bright and rosy. After Russell died due to tuberculosis in Singapore, his widow Kathleen insisted to keep Boh running and after World War II, his son Tristan took over the business and went to become Boh’s longest-serving chairman." 1 "During World War II, the estate was occupied by the Japanese colonials and was largely abandoned. Then, during the Malayan Emergency period between 1948 and 1960, communists targeted the plantations as their prime "ambush territory”. Boh, however, bounced back from the slumber during the 1960s. Under Tristan’s stewardship, Boh grew to four plantations, including the acquisition of the Sungei Palas tea estate which was formerly owned by Danish residents. Then in 1980s, Boh introduced the catchy tagline that still best describes the ‘kick’ you get in every cup of Boh’s tea: "Boh Ada Ummph!” With tea drinkers expanding their palate, Boh rolled out the Instant Tea Mix drinks such as Teh Tarik Kurang Manis, Sencha Green Tea, Garden Teas and Botanical Beverage between 2010 and 2019. Now, at 95, Boh produces 2.8 million kilograms of tea annually and serves five million cups of tea daily. In fact, experienced Boh pickers can harvest over 200kg of green leaves a day, enough to make 45kg of tea! "A cup of Boh tea helps to connect us to ourselves, our friends and family, and even the Earth,” said Caroline Russell, the company’s executive chairman and Russell’s granddaughter. To mark the milestone, Boh is launching a five-day roadshow themed 95 and Brewing for Tomorrow at 1Utama from tomorrow (July 17) to July 21. Boh brand ambassadors Fazura and Azira Shafinaz will also be attending the event. Actress Fazura is also set to unveil a new collection of her Fazura Tudung specially designed for Boh’s 95th anniversary." 2

codeblue.galencentre.org/2024/07/17/dewan-rakyat-passes-medical-bill-radically-revamping-medical-… "The Dewan Rakyat today passed the Medical amendment bill in a radical revamp of medical specialty training in Malaysia, opening it up to local specialist societies beyond universities and enabling the registration of specialists from the parallel pathway." xxxxxxxxxxFull Story Herexxxxxxxxxx "The Dewan Rakyat today passed the Medical (Amendment) Bill 2024 that radically revamps medical specialty training, removing it from the exclusive purview of local universities. The bill – which was passed in a voice vote after 19 MPs participated in a debate that began last night – decouples the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) from the Medical Act, concentrating sole power in the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) to recognise specialist qualifications, training institutions, and training programmes. This indicates that universities themselves no longer require MQA accreditation for their postgraduate medical programmes to be recognised by the MMC or for their graduates to be registered as specialists on the National Specialist Register (NSR), even as university programmes in other fields still require MQA accreditation. The 2024 Medical amendment bill essentially legalised parallel pathway programmes – involving local medical specialist societies, the Ministry of Health (MOH), and foreign institutions – that began in 2014." 1 Alleged “irregularity” of local Master’s programmes in medicine that were started four decades ago – not just the parallel pathway – was only raised in recent days, with Health Minister Dzulkefly Ahmad attributing it to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) interpretation of “recognised training institutions” in the 2012 amendment of the Medical Act. In other words, since MOH is not a “recognised training institution” as it isn’t a higher education provider, therefore local Master’s programmes that utilise MOH hospitals as specialty training centres are also “irregular”, just like the parallel pathway that uses the same training centres." 2 "Among the 19 MPs who debated the bill, most were either from the DAP or PAS, with Pakatan Harapan (PH) lawmakers supporting it and Perikatan Nasional (PN) MPs opposing it or calling for referral of the bill to the Health parliament special select committee (PSSC). On Opposition MPs’ concerns about the decoupling of MQA from the Medical Act and concentration of power in the MMC, Dzulkefly simply said in his winding-up of the debate that the panel of assessors for medical specialty training programmes would remain the same. He also dismissed MPs’ questions about the quality of parallel pathway programmes as “irresponsible” statements, adding that MMC has standards for specialist training and specialty-specific requirements. Other significant clauses in the Medical amendment bill are the “saving and transitional” clauses to register specialists and “specialised training” between July 1, 2017 (when the 2012 amendment came into force) and the date of coming into operation of the 2024 amendment." 3 "A group of nine medical doctors has said that the inclusion of such doctors into the NSR, which would allow them to work as independent specialists without supervision, cannot be “automatic because the qualifications have not been evaluated according to the amendment.” “I want to stress that we’re not opposing this bill because we want to stop MOH from producing more specialist doctors. But we don’t want to compromise on quality and competence that may risk patient safety, due to pressure to produce more specialists,” Kuala Nerus MP Dr Alias Razak from PAS told Parliament last night." 4 "All the health minister said today was that he would not compromise on quality, without answering MPs’ specific questions during the debate. “Don’t question the quality of our graduates who are now consultants or senior consultants.”" 5

Reflecting on a fruitful Q&A session on the Politics of Policymaking with YB Wong Chen. It was a pleasure engaging with students from Kolej Tunku Jaafar, Kolej Yayasan, and British International School.

From tackling poverty to promoting equality and inclusion in politics, the questions were insightful and intruiging.

Engaging with stakeholders and peer learning on global policies are crucial for effective policymaking.

Addressing poverty requires bottom-up understanding about their plights and physchological needs.

Lets hope that the sharing will inspire next generation of activists and politicians. Looking forward to more discussions with youths.

codeblue.galencentre.org/2024/07/11/memorandum-to-the-health-minister-and-health-parliament-commi… "In a memo to the Health Minister and Health Parliament Committee on the parallel pathway, 10 academics and NGO reps (including NCWO, a surgeons’ society, UM’s medical dean, HASA director, and G70 professors) say there’s no need to amend the Medical Act." xxxxxxxxxxFull Story Herexxxxxxxxxx "Introduction We express our highest appreciation to the Health Parliament Special Select Committee (PSSC) for organising an engagement session yesterday with us, together with Health Minister Dzulkefly Ahmad, on the proposed Medical Act amendment bill. Yesterday’s meeting was a follow-up to our initial meeting with several members of the Health PSSC last July 3. We take seriously Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim’s note to the Independent Committee for the Review of Medical Specialist Training Programme 2023, chaired by Prof Emerita Dr Sharifah Hapsah Syed Hasan. The Independent Committee Report has been classified as “confidential”, resulting in no opportunity for the report to be known or discussed publicly. However, Dr Sharifah Hapsah has informed that there is an important note from the Prime Minister that the solution must “follow the law”, meaning it must be based on the law. The Independent Committee Report must be used in resolving this crisis involving the parallel pathway because the report indicates that issues can be resolved by following the existing 2012 amendment of the Medical Act 1971 (Act 50) and other laws." 1 "Parallel Pathway Specialist Programme (PPP) There are 14 PPPs, some of which have been registered in the National Specialist Register (NSR) through administrative processes, and another four PPPs that are not recognised by the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC). The PPPs began with a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between foreign academies, the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH), and local medical specialist associations. These PPPs have been conducted without following the necessary governance and laws of Malaysia. Compliance with existing law is necessary to ensure that all education programmes from within and outside the country, conducted in this country, are of high quality and that the medical specialists produced are guaranteed to be competent and safe. Bringing in foreign programmes, controlled by the MOH – which are not recognised as specialists from the country of origin – results in unhealthy competition with local university programmes because their main source of students is from the MOH. We hope that the Honourable Minister of Health will postpone the presentation of amendments to Act 50 in Parliament until a detailed study can be conducted, so that all doctors who have graduated from PPP and those currently pursuing PPP can be registered on the NSR without the need for amendments to Act 50. Direct registration of PPP graduates can lead to the reputation of medical specialist training programmes in this country being looked down upon by other countries because no other country directly recognises these PPP graduates as specialists. It is also a betrayal to Malaysia’s local university programmes that have been in existence for the past 40 years." 2 "Response to Statements by the Honourable Minister of Health The PPPs were started in 2014 (after the amendment of the Medical Act in 2012), with authorisation by Cabinet decisions from 2014 to 2021. We believe no government will intentionally violate the law. The non-compliance of PPP to the 2012 amendment of the Medical Act is as follows: Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (MATCVS), the Malaysian Urological Association (MUA), and the Academy of Medicine Malaysia (AMM); these organisations are registered under the Registrar of Societies Malaysia. Conducting specialist programmes without complying with Section 4A(2)(h) of the Medical Act, i.e. not going through the programme accreditation process by the MMC, based on the recommendations of the Joint Technical Committee (JTC) established under the MQA Act. In fact, programmes with foreign qualifications (parallel pathway) are not recognised as specialists by the Medical Council of the country of origin. The Honourable Minister is insistent that accreditation is not a requirement. In response to the statement, the FRCS Edinburgh (FRCSEd) programme has previously produced all Cardiothoracic Specialists and anyone who questions the safety performance of PPP Cardiothoracic Specialists is irresponsible: For the record, FRCSEd graduates who passed before the Medical Act (Amendment 2012) had qualified as General Surgeons first. They were gazetted as General Surgeons and were in the NSR as General Surgeons before pursuing cardiothoracic subspecialty training through Apprenticeship. After completing their subspecialty training and passing the NSR Cardiothoracic Evaluation Committee screening, they were then re-registered as Cardiothoracic Surgeons using the same NSR registration number. Senior Cardiothoracic Specialists were more mature and experienced when they started their subspecialty training. It took them more than six years to become safe Cardiothoracic Specialists. The PPP Cardiothoracic training period is only six years and starts at the medical officer level. Therefore, there is a significant difference between directly registering PPP Cardiothoracic graduates in the NSR and Senior Cardiothoracic Specialists. Direct entry into the NSR by amending the Act is an irresponsible action and could harm patients, our people." 3 Part 1

These specialists must be able to improve their knowledge and skills constantly and to keep pace with the rapid changes in the field of medicine, especially on recent advances to treatment, including advanced technology. Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) Is Given Excessive Power 1.Sole power to recognise qualifications The proposed amendment has removed Section 4A(2)(h) “recognise and accredit medical qualifications based upon the recommendation of the Joint Technical Committee establish under Malaysian Qualifications Agency Act 2007 [Act 679] for the purpose of registration”; substituting it with new paragraphs (i) and (j): “(i) recognize specialized training for registration of specialists under this Act; and “(j) appoint any registered medical practitioner to represent the Council in any committee, panel or institution where that person would subsequently make recommendations to the Council on all matters relating to the qualification of medical practitioner or the regulation of the practice of medicine.” Comment: This means MMC does not have to refer to the MQA Act to recognise qualifications. 2. Sole power to recognise training institutions By deleting the definition of “recognized training institution”; and substituting Paragraph 14(2A)(a), MMC is empowered to determine the training programme in any institution. Comment: This means recognition of educational/ training institutions shifted from the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) to the MMC. This is a major policy change in higher education and will likely affect other professions. Has MOHE studied the impact of this amendment on other professional programmes? 3. Sole power to recognise programmes MMC has sole power to recognise programmes by inserting after the definition of “Specialist” the following definition: “specialized training” means a specialized training referred to in subsection 14B(3);’’ This section refers to “Person entitled to be registered as Specialist 14B(3) The specialized training referred to in this Act shall be construed as a reference to — (a) a training approved by the Council in relation to a specialty as specified in the first column of the Fourth Schedule as provided by— (i) the Ministry of Health; (ii) a local higher educational institution; or (iii) any other institutions within Malaysia as approved by the Council; or (b) any other training acceptable to the Council which is provided outside Malaysia in relation to a specialty as specified in the first column of the Fourth Schedule or subspecialty as specified in the Fifth Schedule.” Overall Comment: This amendment means that the MMC is empowered to recognise institutions, training programmes, and qualifications on their own. The same Council implements all processes; hence, there is no check and balance to guarantee a proper quality assurance process. This is different from the process that local educational institutions go through i.e. obtain approval to run programmes from the Ministry of Higher Education and undergo a quality assurance process according to MQA. This is the correct process that guarantees integrity of the quality assurance process, very much the same practice internationally. Giving sole power to only one body, the MMC, will open opportunities for abuse and misuse of power. If this bill is passed, we will expose the quality of the health system to a reputational risk that will affect the country’s image at the international level. The most important impact is on medical tourism." Part 1

This major piece of legislation – which was tabled by the government for first reading in the Dewan Rakyat earlier today and expected to pass in just two days – was proposed after the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) rejected applications by four graduates of the cardiothoracic surgery parallel pathway programme to register as specialists on the National Specialist Register (NSR). Instead of subjecting parallel pathway programmes run by local medical specialist societies to the regulatory and accreditation process imposed on universities’ postgraduate medical programmes for quality assurance, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim’s government has, ironically, proposed transferring such responsibilities (over both types of programmes) entirely to the MMC. The MMC was previously denounced by parallel pathway advocates as a “cartel”." 1 "The 2024 amendment bill completely decouples the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) from the Medical Act, placing the burden of auditing and evaluating medical specialist training – whether provided by medical non-governmental organisations (NGOs) or universities – solely on the MMC. Under the MQA Act, the MQA has the following functions, among others: Implement and update the Malaysian Qualifications Framework; – Accredit programmes, qualifications and higher education providers; – Conduct institutional audit and review of programmes, qualifications and higher education providers; – Establish and maintain a register to register programmes, qualifications and higher education providers; – Conduct courses, training programmes and to provide consultancy and advisory services relating to quality assurance; – Establish and maintain liaison and cooperation with quality assurance and accreditation bodies in higher education within and outside Malaysia; – Act as a qualifications reference centre on accredited programmes, qualifications and higher education providers. – Does the MMC have the capacity to perform – for medical specialist training provided by medical societies or postgraduate medical education provided by universities – any of these MQA functions? Under the 2024 amendment bill, it’s not only parallel pathway programmes run by local medical fraternities that are exempt from MQA accreditation, but also all postgraduate medical programmes run by local universities. Universities do not have to bother getting either provisional or full accreditation from MQA for their Master’s or doctoral programmes in medicine; all they need is approval from either the MMC or the Health Minister to get their graduates registered as specialist doctors." Under the new Section 14B(3) of the amendment bill, “specialised training” refers to “a training approved” by the MMC in a new Fourth Schedule of the Act, as provided by the Ministry of Health (MOH), a local higher educational institution, or “any other institutions within Malaysia as approved by the Council”." 2 "In the cardiothoracic surgery parallel pathway, the programme is carried out fully in MOH facilities and administered by a local medical specialist society that also carries out assessments. The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) simply provides the exit exam and the FRCS Edinburgh in Cardiothoracic Surgery qualification. While opening up medical specialist training beyond the confines of universities or higher education providers may be perceived as liberalisation, the 2024 Medical Act amendment bill does not propose setting up a medical equivalent of the MQA, or a separate agency, to accredit medical specialist training or postgraduate medical programmes. Instead, a new Section 4A(2)(j) of the 2024 amendment bill broadly empowers the MMC to “appoint any registered medical practitioner to represent the Council in any committee, panel or institution where that person would subsequently make recommendations to the Council on all matters relating to the qualification of medical practitioner or the regulation of the practice of medicine.”" 3 "Under the 2012 amendment of the Medical Act, which was enforced just seven years ago in 2017, medical specialist training was restricted to universities or higher education providers, while MQA was relied upon to ensure the standards of such local Master’s or postgraduate programmes in medicine." "MMC played the role of the final gatekeeper, i.e even if a particular programme was accredited by MQA, the MMC made the final decision on whether to register graduates as specialist doctors. But the 2024 amendment bill expects MMC to play both roles: auditing the quality of medical specialist programmes (the word “accredit” is removed from the bill) and evaluating individual graduates for specialist registration. While specialist training in the United Kingdom is carried out by centuries-old surgical societies like the RCSEd, the UK has multiple bodies and structures to run and regulate specialist training, not just the General Medical Council (GMC) alone. RCSEd – unlike local specialist societies like the Academy of Medicine of Malaysia (AMM) or the Malaysian Association for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (MATCVS) – is run as a multi-million pound business that likely has many full-time staff." 4 "Do local specialist societies, whose leadership are also likely working in the MOH, have the same capacity as universities to run specialist training programmes? As it is, the MOH is struggling with a shortage of health care professionals across all levels, with medical officers playing the role of housemen, and specialists playing the role of medical officers. Removing MQA’s role from auditing medical specialist training does not empower, but instead will likely overwhelm the MMC into paralysis. The 2024 amendment bill also weakens the MMC by transferring powers over the List of Registrable Specialist Qualifications (renamed from List of Recognised Postgraduate Qualifications) and the List of Subspecialty – under the new Fourth and Fifth Schedules of the Act – to the Health Minister, with the MMC reduced to playing a “consulting” role for the minister. The “saving and transitional” clauses under the bill – which register specialists and specialised training between July 1, 2017 and the date of coming into operation of the 2024 amendment – will also likely open Malaysia to graduates with foreign qualifications that are not recognised in the country of origin for specialist registration. For cardiothoracic surgery, the UK and Singapore only recognise locally trained doctors, though these countries also review applications from specialists trained outside on a case-by-case basis." 5 "Does the government plan to substantially increase financial and human resources for the MMC, local specialist societies, and the MOH to audit and run medical specialist training, even as the roles of all three appear to be merged in the 2024 amendment bill? If MPs pass this bill, they will be responsible for drastically revamping the entire structure of medical specialist training and postgraduate medical education. Is this in the best interest of the country? We will only know in several years’ time. Medicine is not TVET. Self-regulation in medicine and health care is never acceptable." 6
