槟州重拾动力!


真正好的东西,不用自赞自夸,更不用自己登广告宣扬自己为自己的KPI打了多少分。

槟州民联政府执政3年多以来,没有为自己的kPI打过分数;倒是权威的国际杂志“经济学人”在最新一期的报导中,为槟州这3年来的发展给予了不少赞美。

槟城在70年代崛起的成功因素,是透过自由贸易港的设立以及廉价的劳工,吸引了不少国际电子企业前来开设海外分厂。然而,随着马来西亚经济增长,以及中国、越南的改革开放,廉价劳工不再是我们的优势,槟城也因此失去了过去的核心竞争力。

在渡过了超过10年的低潮后,槟城于2008年再度起飞,迎来了外资涌入的第二春。槟城得以重新出发的关键,根据“经济学人”的分析,在于其成功转型为“低成本,高科技”的完美结合。

槟城不再自我定位为廉价组装中心,而转为提供薪酬合理的高科技人才。由外资进驻所创造的大部分就业机会,是以研究开发为主,而不再是劳力组装。例子之一:美国的晶片设计公司 –Altera在槟城开设的新厂,带来了1,100个就业机会,其中有800个是工程师,而且聘请的近乎全都是本地人。

槟城的改革,“经济学人”为林冠英所领导的州政府记上一功,称他为“国内第一位推行州政府工程公开招标的首长”,对制衡州内朋党自肥、贪污滥权起着正面作用,同时也让外资对该州重拾信心。

这篇报道,可能又会引起朝野政党新一轮的口水战。槟州重现“东方之珠”的神采,到底是现任州政府领导有方,还是前朝政府福泽后人,槟州子民可以直接感受,全国人民也可以看出端倪。

重要的是,面对槟城 “底成本,高科技”的成功方程式,其他州政府是否应该放下政治歧见,向前者取经学习?甚至连高喊“经济转型”但却未见成效的中央政府,是否也应该放下对槟州政府一贯否定的态度,一面虚心吸纳其良好施政的精华,一面真诚支援其振兴槟州的计划?

毕竟,我们期盼重拾动力的不止是槟城,而是整个马来西亚。

Indeed Penang is a small state with little of resources like oil palms, rubbers and underground minings as capital based, but its locatons as a tourist attractions and highly technology development has the fundamental preference by pioneer industries and foreign investors.
Since 308 general election the PR take over as state government lead by CM Lim and his team leaders, implementing the so called CAT good governance, Penang once again emerged as a bright Eastern Star, in just less than one term of their new governance, it has been drawn the global attractions and good publicise recently.
It is therefore the people of Penang to make a wise choice in the coming 13th general elections to ensure the present government secure an even majority seats in state so as to consolidate and drawn more talented leaders with new creative ideology for the benefits of the people of Penang.
And above all to develop Penang as a Model State with phosycated high technology, medical advance and education centre in this regions. Ensuring a fair and merits system for talents to build up strength in the home state.
It is necessary to inspire and instill the knowledge of one for all and all for one in the state so that the new generations be committed with sence of love and be proud as a Penang citizen.
