Initiative is to allow direct and secure communication between the public and the Government
PUTRAJAYA: All Malaysians who are 18 years old and above will be assigned an email account each in order to receive statements, bills and notices from the Government.
The initiative would allow direct and secure communication between the public and the Government, said Tricubes Bhd chief executive officer Khairun Zainal Mokhtar.
Tricubes Bhd is the company developing the 1Malaysia Email project in collaboration with Microsoft.
Khairun said Tricubes Bhd would also spearhead the development of a web portal which would include social networking services, online bill checking and payments.
“Currently, the company is still running stress test for the portal.
“Hopefully, we can get it ready by July this year,” he told a press conference at the fifth progress update of the Economic Transformation Programme in here, Tuesday.
What do you think? Hope this won’t be another white elephant projects by the government. You guys know lah government and their portals. It’s either lack of professional touch or it’s not functional at all (j/k). But what’s up with the site counter on most of the gov portal? Man, that is so 90s.
Anyway its a relief to know that this project is using Microsoft mail. Probably they will be using live.mail.com. Towards modernize Malaysia!
and someone always quoted that “Malaysia ke arah kuasa besar dunia”, and I strongly felt there is something wrong with that
