KUALA TERENGGANU: The 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) will be implemented based on the federal government’s capacity to provide and the needs of the respective state governments with regard to priority projects.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said he would obtain information from each state in the country on their needs before the conclusions could be made in the 11MP.

“I will not make hasty decisions, but this is the process I will take for each state and we will gather (all the information) and decide whether the federal government has the capacity to do what it needs to do during the 11MP period.”

Najib said this to reporters after listening to an hour’s briefing on Terengganu’s development by the state government at Wisma Darul Iman, here, today.

The prime minister said he had so far visited Perak and Kedah to get information on the needs of each of these states to be included in the 11MP in view of the 10MP ending next year.

He said the priorities in the 11MP would be in accordance with the wants of the state governments first, such as the need of the Terengganu government for flood-mitigation projects in Kemaman, besides improving the economy of the people in Terengganu. -BERNAMA
