Well, it seems we are not the only ones that has congratulated Prasarana. Besides the Prime Minister himself, the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) has also provided congratulatory statements by commending Prasarana Malaysia Bhd (Prasarana) for its success in Saudi Arabia, saying it is a significant recognition of a homegrown Malaysian company.
Quoting SPAD chief executive officer Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal, he said that;
"This (winning the contract) is line with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's hope that more homegrown companies could be world-class operators in transportation.
"We (SPAD) hope that many more in other areas of transport, such as express buses and stage buses, would follow suit as these type of services are frequently offered in competitive bidding all over the world.
"Malaysia needs its operators to become world-class by offering better services,"
According to Datuk Mohd Nur Ismail, local companies must continue to develop and improve the homegrown industry not only in operation but also in maintenance and refurbishment as well as design of public vehicles.
We at the #KLChronicle would also like to congratulate SPAD for playing an important role in ensuring service providers such as transportation companies provide reliable, affordable and good quality service to the rakyat. This in turn would further improve the rakyat's quality of life which is always a good barometer of people's support of the administration/government.
