TEKS UCAPAN KETUA MENTERI PULAU PINANG
SEMPENA TAKLIMAT LATIHAN INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION 4.0

AUDITORIUM IBU PEJABAT MPSP
9 OKTOBER 2017, 9 PAGI
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Terlebih dahulu, saya mengucapkan tahniah atas kejayaan menganjurkan Taklimat Latihan Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) pada hari ini.

Saya difahamkan taklimat pada hari ini merupakan taklimat untuk memberi pengenalan dan gambaran yang jelas kepada pelaksanaan Industrial Revolution 4.0 agar ianya dapat dilaksanakan dengan lebih berkesan di Seberang Perai. Taklimat ini merangkumi penglibatan Ahli Majlis, Pegawai Pengurusan Atasan dan pegawai-pegawai MPSP. 
Sebelum ini revolusi perindustrian pertama bergantung kepada penggunaan mesin berkuasa wap. Revolusi perindustrian kedua pula melibatkan kuasa elektrik. Diikuti revolusi perindustrian ketiga berasaskan teknologi maklumat dan komputer sebagai tonggaknya. Gelombang keempat atau industri 4.0 didorong oleh revolusi digital atau internet melalui aplikasi sistem siber fizikal yang bukan hanya tertumpu pada sektor pembuatan malah akan turut melibatkan sektor perkhidmatan. Gelombang ini merupakan kesinambungan daripada gelombang perindustrian ketiga yang berteraskan sistem elektronik dan teknologi maklumat.

Sejajar dengan perkembangan teknologi yang menggalakkan penggunaan internet secara maksima, Pulau Pinang akan menguasai gelombang Industrial Revolution 4.0 yang merangkumi Big Data Analytics, Cloud Computing, E-Commerce, Crowd Sourcing dan Internet of Things. Pulau Pinang tidak mempunyai sumber asli lain, justeru Kerajaan Negeri komited untuk membangunkan modal insan demi menjamin pembangunan ekonomi yang mampan.

Bak kata pepatah di Silicon Valley “Data Is King” tetapi saya mahu menambah “ Talent is everything”. Itulah sebabnya kami harus didedahkan dengan teknologi terkini serta membina modal insan yang celik atau berpengetahuan tentang ilmu ini. Kerajaan Negeri telah mengambil initiatif mendalami pendidikan STEM (Science, Technology, English and Mathematic) dengan pelbagai projek yang berharga RM68 juta.

Akhir sekali, adalah baik MPSP memberikan perhatian kepada industri 4.0 menerusi taklimat hari ini dan diharapkan anda dapat lebih memahami tentang teknologi asas dan semua yang digunakan dan yang perlu disediakan oleh MPSP bagi melaksanakan Industrial Revolution 4.0 di Seberang Perai.

Dengan itu, saya merasmikan Taklimat Latihan Industrial Revolution 4.0 pada hari ini.

Sekian, terima kasih.

At Silver Jubilee Home for the Aged 

Senior Citizens’ Day is celebrated annually at Silver Jubilee Home to recognize the contributions of these senior citizens to our family and society. As the Chinese proverb goes, “when you drink the water, remember its source”.

For all that they have achieved throughout life and what they continue to accomplish, we owe these senior citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We should show our gratitude by showering them with love, time and patience.

Here, at Silver Jubilee Home, the 160 over residents’ welfare is filled with tender loving care and treatment. Ever since its establishment in 1935, the General Committee Members, supported by some 50 over full time staff, have worked tirelessly.

The various facilities that are of world-class standard attests to the excellent and efficient management of the Home as well as allowing the residents to live with proper care, with hope not despair. The Home's expenditure comes up to RM 2, 170, 763 million annually, all which are raised from the public. Thank you.

Silver Jubilee Home also opens its doors to potential residents and the Public for 365/366 days a year. At the 2 medical wards, i.e. male and female wards, residents are cared for by nursing staff for 24 hours a day. We can be proud that this is the best run government senior citizens welfare home in Malaysia!

A very good evening to everyone here today and welcome to the Penang Lantern Festival 2017.

The Lantern Festival also known as Mid-Autumn Festival or Mooncake festival is also a special day of reunion for family members to get together to admire the full moon. There are many interesting programmes and performances lined up for this evening including famous performing groups specially invited from Sanya, Chengdu and Juizaigho. We also have a food stall from Chengdu as an addition to the 20 food stalls here serving delicious Penang food. We hope we can organize more direct flights to these cities from Penang.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the international performers tonight for your visit to Penang and for being with us tonight to share your talent and culture with us Penangites. The State Government will continue to organize the Festival annually. Lastly, I hope everyone will have a good time and enjoy yourselves at the festival.

Thank you.
