ALOR SETAR, July 6 (Bernama) -- The Kedah government is carrying out internal audits on several state government linked companies (GLC) to determine their competitiveness, Menteri Besar Datuk Mukhriz Tun Dr Mahathir said today.

"We will also review their business models and may close or deregister those found not viable," he said after launching the World Blood Donors Day and state level Pre-Ramadan blood donation campaign here today.

The campaign is jointly organised by the State Health Department, Maktab Rendah Sains Mara alumni and Kubang Pasu Community Development Foundation.

He added that the state government was in the process of restructuring the GLCs in stages.

"Several board of director members have almost come to the end of their terms and a few new names have been suggested," he said.

On a separate development, Mukhriz said the authorities had taken speedy action to help the flash flood victims in Kuala Kedah and Langkawi which occurred several days ago.
