PUTRAJAYA, April 12 (Bernama) -- I welcome the good news of the Supplementary Agreement signed between Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd and China Communications Construction Company Ltd (CCCC) that will pave the way for the resumption of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project.
I also hope the CCCC will prioritise local contents in the construction of the project. A lot of materials made from Malaysian rubber can be used in the construction of the rail track as well as for seismic bearing, while Malaysian timber is suitable as rail sleepers.

ESSEN, Germany, April 12 (Bernama) -- Networked sensors, machines and systems in industry 4.0 increase complexity, but at the same time form new attack vectors for cyber criminals and thus increase the risk of system errors or even failures. Machines therefore require comprehensive protection against external influences, but should open up to increase connectivity. The secunet edge solution meets precisely this seemingly paradoxical requirement. Like a protective cover, secunet edge wraps itself around the machine and decouples its life cycle from that of the IT environment.
secunet edge secures machines at the edge of the network and thus isolates them from the Internet. The data flows are controlled between defined segments, as required by the protection requirements of the zones. At the same time, the solution enables the secure and problem-free connection of devices, machines or systems to internal and external IT services and IoT platforms and forms the central component of Remote Services for secure remote access scenarios. It combines the highest possible protection of the machine with cloud services and transparent access control.
PUTRAJAYA, April 12 (Bernama) -- Referring to an article in The Star dated 6 April 2019 titled “MM2H and excellent government initiative”, the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia (MOTAC) would like to emphasize that the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) Programme is systematically progressing well since its implementation in 2002. The Ministry would also like to state that the MM2H Programme is an on-going programme and is still open for new applications.
The Cabinet has come to consensus on 5 September 2018 that new applications for MM2H Programme will only be approved by the Minister of Home Affairs, Malaysia.

MM2H). The responsibility of this Committee is only to review and recommend the applications to Minister of Home Affairs, Malaysia. The Minister of Home Affairs, Malaysia shall be the sole person who has the power and full authority to approve any MM2H applications.
