It is our hope that all ministries will continue to give their full commitment to realise the medium and long-term aspirations and various initiatives of the prime minister for the wellbeing and prosperity of Keluarga Malaysia," said Mohd Zuki.

According to Mohd Zuki, the prime minister created the AKM programme to ensure that ministries practiced a high-performance work culture and provided the best delivery services for the public's benefit, especially in the aftermath of the pandemic

With the programme running from 1 September to 9 December 2021, 26 ministries along with five agencies were tasked to demonstrate their accomplishments within 100 days.

Regarding the four-day 100 AKM event, Mohd Zuki said the it was the first in the country which involved all ministries and government departments at the same time

"This marked a new record, one that is unique and special, which saw the cooperation and solid synergy under the spirit of Keluarga Malaysia to make it a success.

"The Keluarga Malaysia concept came at the right time amid us being tested with the pandemic, which had triggered a health crisis and impacted the nation's economy.

"It is the time for us to face the challenges brought about by the pandemic together as a big, loving family and be concerned with the fate of our members.

"The Keluarga Malaysia aspiration has indirectly given us the strength to face the coming challenges," said the Chief Secretary.
