KUALA LUMPUR, July 4 (Bernama) -- The implementation of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) 2.0 is a testament that the government is serious in addressing the efficiency of the civil service, including corruption.

Auditor General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang said the government was focused on fighting corruption but it cannot be successful without the cooperation of parties involved, including private sectors dealing with government agencies.

He said government servants are now more aware of the expectation to give better service and delivery, derived from the GTP implementation.

"Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak himself has given recommendation on how to improvise the civil service by suggesting fast, accurate and integrity approach and practicing the culture of creativity and innovation.

"These are challenges to all civil servants to improve their performance," he told Bernama after a luncheon talk organised by Business Ethics Institute of Malaysia, here, today.

Ambrin said the implementation of GTP 2.0 was a continuation of GTP after the government was satisfied with its outcome.

However, he said the civil service improvisation effort might take some time to bear fruition and he called on all parties to support the government's initiatives.
