KUALA LUMPUR, June 22 (Bernama) -- Following the selection of Malaysia as the chairman of Asean in 2015, the Government Servants' Welfare and Sports Council (Maksak) will submit a proposal to host the 1st Asean Public Service Games 2015.
Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa said the championship would gather athletes and civil service officers from among Asean member nations in the form of a carnival.
"I'm most excited with the idea and believe the programme can push up Maksak Malaysia's name and give an opportunity to civil service athletes to enhance their performance and carry the name of the Malaysian civil service at the South-east Asian level," he said.
Ali, who is also Maksak President, said this in his speech when closing the Maksak Mini Sports Carnival 2014 at the Malaysian National Sports Council's Mini Stadium, Bukit Jalil, here Sunday.
The text of his speech was read by the Director-General of Public Service who is also Maksak Deputy President, Tan Sri Mohamad Zabidi Zainal.....
