UDA Holdings chairman Datuk Johari Abdul Ghani outlines own version of inclusive growth strategy into government

Over the last 50 years, global economic growth was exceptionally rapid. The world economy expanded sixfold. Average per-capita income almost tripled. Hundreds of millions of people are no longer poor. Yet, unless we dramatically improve productivity, the next half century will look different. The rapid expansion of the last 50 years will be seen as an aberration of history.… The problem is, slower population growth and longer life expectancy are limiting growth in the working-age population.

 Datuk Johari UMNO supreme council member said flurry of activity on the economic policy front . Just when many were beginning to get worried about the government’s slow pace of action, the lack of ‘movement on the ground’, as many businessmen would put it, about UMNO’s political distractions and the growing sectarian rhetoric, and Najib was being taunted with the jibe that he is ‘all talk and no walk’, the Prime Minister has injected new purpose into his government  version of a strategy for ‘inclusive growth’. It was assumed that a paralysed bureaucracy would somehow stand up and run, and all that the Prime Minister had to do was to deliver inspiring speeches and urge them to act.Finally,This risk-averse political strategy is something like former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s view that one’s work should speak for itself, there is no point advertising and claiming credit. Given that Prime Minister Modi was never shy of trumpeting his achievements, silence on the part of various ministers was seen more as continuing policy paralysis, rather than political shyness.
 No more excuse that implementing  system is "very hard" and would "take time".
Datuk Johari ’s mantra ‘minimum government and maximum governance’ requires a CEO-like approach to administration with stress on the evaluation process is based on the key principles of value for money and open and effective competition. to reach out to the masses. Can corporate CEO’s converge with his vision? His simple and short answer is to bring in as many people with integrity, sense of national responsibility and accountability into the government.the system also weeded out the “rentiers” from the real contractors who could deliver on an order or who could complete a project a hypothesis suggested by some in the government is that the various ministries of the government were, in fact, doing a lot, but none of the ministers was able to summon up the courage to advertise their good work for fear of being dubbed as publicity-seekers.
