KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- In view of the alarming rise in cybercrime in Malaysia, the government is taking serious steps to address the scourge.

As Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo himself has said, cybercrime was posing a serious threat to Malaysians who were losing their hard-earned money, amounting to hundreds of thousands of ringgit, to scammers.

The Communications and Multimedia Ministry, through the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), has had several discussions with Bukit Aman's Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) to seek ways to combat the cybercrime menace, according to a press statement issued by Gobind on Oct 8.

SEOUL (Bernama) -- One of the key features of any modern metropolis is its metro, namely the intra-city rail transport that makes travelling across the traffic-choked city a breeze.

However, planning, implementing and maintaining a metro system is not only costly but also requires in-depth knowledge and expertise. This is especially so when there are different train systems making up the metro, like in Malaysia where the metro network comprises the MRT, LRT, ERL, monorail and KTM rail lines. Many of the metros of the world today are constantly finding ways to keep their maintenance cost and downtime of their rail assets at a minimum. Hence, excellent management practices, effective in-house maintenance and development of indigenous technologies are crucial for any metro operator. 

Though the metro system puts Malaysia’s capital city Kuala Lumpur on a par with many major cities of the world, the country has lots to learn in being innovative in managing and maintaining the system efficiently for the future.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 9 (Bernama) -- The Irish access to the Malaysian market in fulfilling the demand of the agri-food sector here will further boost trade ties between the two nations, especially after high-level meetings held following a trade mission to Southeast Asia, says Ireland Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed.

Therefore, the separation of the EPF and life insurance tax relief would certainly benefit the people by encouraging them to buy life insurance for themselves and their loved ones and help increase Malaysia’s insured population to 75 per cent.
