Ministry To Table Five-year Blue Print Next Month

JOHOR BAHARU, June 3 (Bernama) -- The Youth and Sports Ministry will table its blue print for the next five years as part of efforts to enhance both sectors in the country.

Its minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the plan to be implemented over the next five years was expected to be tabled next month to stimulate the existing programmes.

"We are currently studying the operations and strategy of the ministry. Any changes would be based on the current trend," he told reporters after visiting the Johor Youth and Sports Complex in Larkin, today.

Khairy said his ministry would study the list of current programmes and its relevance since some may have to be rebranded, upgraded or dropped because they are not relevant.

He said the visit to Johor would be followed by similar visits to other states as part of efforts to strengthen youth and sports perogrammes as well as enhance the working relationship with all states.

Khairy said state youth and sports departments have also been asked to prepare their respective programmes and road map to be in tandem with the ministry's own road map.

Also present during the visit was deputy Youth and Sports Minister Datuk M. Saravanan.
