KUCHING (Bernama) – The Sarawak Agriculture Department has finalised its new organisational framework, according to Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Alfred Jabu Numpang.
He said the framework was in line with the state government’s aspirations, and in tandem with the State Civil Service 10-20 Action Plan.
Jabu, who is also Agriculture Modernisation Minister and Rural Development Minister, said the reorganisation of the department
was timely, in anticipation of major changes in the organisation’s environment or technology.
“These changes are associated with significant alteration in the ministry’s vision, mission and strategies which require it to modify its corporate culture as well as internal structures and processes to support the new direction.
“Such fundamental change entails new paradigm for organising and managing the organisation,” he said. He said
this in his speech text read by Agriculture Modernisation permanent secretary Datuk Dr Ngenang Janggu while launching the
Sarawak Senior Agricultural Officers’ Conference.
One hundred and eighty participants attended the conference which ended yesterday.
