Everything you sincerely want to know about APCO but too stupid to ask!

text related to image
Here is everything you want to know about APCO but you are either afraid to ask or you would rather believe the lies spread by Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.

Here is one of the stark naked facts to show that Anwar was indeed lying through his teeth. On Tuesday of last week when challenged to identify a link between APCO, 1Malaysia and 1Israel, he failed to answer, why because such links do not exist.

Let us begin with some facts, and the government is assured that:

- APCO does not work for the government of Israel;

- APCO had nothing to do with One Israel;

- APCO was not responsible for 1Malaysia;

- APCO is not part of any country's security services;

- APCO does not work for dictators;

- The security company in which APCO has an investment is not involved, and has never been involved, in Malaysia.

First and foremost, APCO is a communications company – nothing more and nothing less – the only information or facts to which they have access are those the Government wants to make public. Apco works with multiple ministers of the government.

Anyone who knows this government knows it will never compromise our national interest or our national security. There is no hanky panky about hiring APCO to help the government.

he information disclosed about APCO's work globally is publicly available and can be found on the Internet. Far from being secret or sinister, the details of APCO’s work are on the internet for the entire world to see.

APCO helps the government communicate with the people of Malaysia more effectively so that the people understand how the reforms we are making will benefit them – from the New Economic Model to the 10th Malaysia Plan; how together these reforms will help to deliver a better life for themselves, their families and their country.

Consistency and clarity in the government’s communication activities – from community messages to major policy initiatives and crisis response – is not something that happens overnight. And the systems providing this clarity will belong to the people of Malaysia through the civil service and not any one government.

APCO's international experts are delivering world class training and introducing global best practices to help the Malaysian civil service understand the value of and practice effective communications. Walls are being broken down to improve efficiency and cooperation within and between ministries.

By communicating better at home we can also improve how we communicate abroad so that we can attract the future international investment our country needs. How we respond to issues, define policy and demonstrate accountability, directly shapes the way the country’s modernity, investment stability and security are evaluated.

It is vital to improve our communications capacity because the opposition has consistently maligned Malaysia’s reputation abroad, which in turn threatens our ability to attract key sources of revenue through foreign direct investment and tourism.

Hiring international experts allows us to implement best practices in communications and cross ministry coordination, saving time and money to avoid costly errors. Most importantly, the international experts we have hired are helping to build up our domestic communications capacity to a world class standard so there is a lasting, long-term legacy for our country.

Why has the Opposition chosen to focus on the international experts we have hired and made outrageous allegations about their work, their association and their motivation? I do not believe that these allegations are about the PR agencies we have hired to improve communications about the government's reforms.

They are instead an attempt to undermine the government's reform programme and the success of 1Malaysia. The opposition do not have any practical alternatives to the reform programme we are delivering they are trying instead to throw up this smokescreen.

They cannot debate alternative policy so they are focussing on attacking the process; they cannot address the positive benefits this government is bringing – on crime and corruption, education, anti-poverty, jobs and economic growth – and instead they are focusing their energy on negative campaigning.

The opposition do not want Malaysia to move forward; they do not want our people better engaged with our government; they do not want our country to take our rightful place amongst the growth economies of the world; they do not want us to look and learn from the mistakes of other countries' governments in the past and not have Malaysia repeat those mistakes in the future.

Instead, the Opposition will peddle any allegation, no matter how outrageous or offensive, no matter at what cost to our country, to play their political games. Their objective is to generate unfounded fears rather than improve our international reputation.

Their agenda is about creating national division rather than building 1Malaysia. But in fact, many great national movements have begun from simple ideas that bring people together. 1Malaysia offers the same hope for our country.

On Tuesday the PM received the New Economic Model report that lays out a positive agenda for economic progress. We will remain committed to this reform agenda. Let us be absolutely clear: this government will not be intimidated by Opposition’s campaign of distortion.

Whilst they continue their efforts to misled our parliament, we will continue our mission to lead the country. Malaysians have the national confidence to define what we stand for and how we will build respect with other countries.

We are at a unique crossroads in our history where we can shrink back to the politics of hate, the politics of insecurity and doubt, the politics of factionalism; or we can be bold enough to experiment with new ideas and seek guidance necessary to attract greater investment and streamline the way our government does business.

Now is the time for us to engage with the world, to draw inspiration and energy from the best practices available. The opposition has not provided any substance to their rhetoric.

They have instead called for government stagnation. To stick with the status quo. Our job, of leaders, is to follow a path for government transformation. That is what we are doing through the difficult process of reform. That is what we are doing by establishing greater trade routes. And that is what we are doing by engaging the world’s experts to help us become more effective on the global stage.

ANWAR SEBENARNYA TAK PERNAH BACA KONTRAK APCO!

Malaysiakini: Kekalutan Apco - Anwar mohon campur tangan Agong (sini)

Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim hari ini berkata beliau telah menulis kepada Yang Di-pertuan Agong untuk memohon Seri Paduka menasihatkan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak supaya membatalkan kontrak Apco dan juga kontak-kontrak lain yang mempunyai kaitan dengan agen Israel.

"Surat berkenaan dihantar kepada Agong petang ini," katanya di parlimen.

Anwar juga menekankan kepentingan menamatkan kontrak dengan Apco kerana jika tidak ia akan menjejaskan imej negara dan mengancam keselamatan Malaysia.

1. Demikian petikan dari portal Malaysiakini mengenai surat yang dihantar oleh Anwar kepada Yang Dipertuan Agong sebagai usaha susulan beliau ke atas isu APCO demi untuk mengalihkan perhatian dari kes yang sedang dihadapinya di mahkamah.

2. Sebenarnya jika beliau menghantar surat berkenaan kepada Yang Dipertuan Agong (YDPA), maka jelaslah “kebodohan” dan makin terserlahlah tahap kualiti kepimpinan yang rendah yang ada padanya. Mengapa Anwar “bodoh” dan bukan pemimpin yang berkualiti?

3. Pada 31 Mac 2010 yang lalu, Anwar melalui blognya (sini) dan blog-blog pro-pembangkang yang lain (sini dan sini misalnya) telah menjaja salinan yang dikatakan sebagai Dokumen Perjanjian Antara APCO Worldwide Dengan Kerajaan Malaysia bagi “mengesahkan” segala tuduhan yang dilempar mereka kepada Kerajaan Persekutuan.

4. Apa yang menampakkan “kebodohan” Anwar dan para penyokongnya ialah, di dalam dokumen yang dijaja Anwar itu (sini), telah jelas tertulis tempoh dan tarikh kontrak di antara Kerajaan Persekutuan dengan APCO iaitu selama 6 bulan bermula dari 15 Julai 2009 dan berakhir pada 15 Januari 2010 (the Government has agreed to accept your tender as modified for a period of six (6) months commencing July 15, 2009 and ending on January 15, 2010).

5. Kontrak APCO apa lagi yang nak ditamatkan? Bukankah sekarang ini sudah bulan April 2010? Ataupun beliau masih lagi beranggapan sekarang ini belum lagi sampai ke tarikh 16 September 2008 atau 2009? Ini “bukti” yang dikemukakan sendiri oleh Anwar. Di dalam blognya sendiri!

6. Ini jelas menunjukkan Anwar tidak peduli apa saja “eksibit” yang diserahkan kepadanya oleh mana-mana pihak sekalipun, asalkan dapat diguna untuk menghentam YAB Najib dan Kerajaan Persekutuan. Usah kata nak disemak terlebih dahulu, dicarikan fakta betul atau tidak, membacanya pun tidak. Adakah ini kualiti kepimpinan yang boleh diangkat untuk menjadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia?

7. Begitu juga dengan seorang lagi anak didik beliau, YB Balik Pulau Yusmadi Yusoff, juga tidak mencari maklumat yang sebenar (sini). Sebagai seorang peguam, bukankah beliau sepatutnya menyemak dan bercakap berdasarkan fakta dan bukti?

8. Kesimpulannya, “kebodohan” Anwar dapat dilihat dalam tindakannya ini. Beliau perlu mengakui sama ada dokumen yang dikemukakan di dalam blognya itu palsu ataupun beliau perlu mengemukakan dokumen baru yang menyatakan Kerajaan Persekutuan telah menyambung kontrak APCO setelah ia tamat pada 15 Januari 2010. Jika tidak, Anwar memang pembohong!

Nota kaki:
Entah-entah surat yang dihantar kepada YDPA itu pun Anwar tak baca. Cuma tolong jadi “posmen” saja untuk dapat nama. Soalnya, siapa yang tolong karangkan surat berkenaan untuk beliau?
