KUALA LUMPUR, May 28 (Bernama) -- Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) Ramadan’s Roadshow should in the future be extended to interior and Orang Asli areas.
Deputy Communications and Multimedia Minister Eddin Syazlee Shith said the programme was the best platform to get close to the people at the grassroots level, especially the poor.
“Overall, I am very satisfied with the programme. I also agree that it is a corporate social responsibility (CSR) which brings RTM closer to the listeners and fans, while helping to convey the government’s mission and vision.
“However, there is still room for improvement in the coming editions, especially involving the Orang Asli,” he told reporters at the closing ceremony of the Ramadan Roadshow Programme 2019 at Wisma Radio Angkasapuri here.
The roadshow which ended after 24 days and 30 locations throughout the country, beginning with Johor Bharu on May 5, was aimed at getting close to the hardcore poor group to give contributions from the public and organise community activities with the local people.
With the theme 'Sucinya Ramadan', the programme which began in 2012 has been recognised by the Malaysia Book of Records as a Malaysian CSR programme which organises 38 activities throughout the country.
